In France, trials will soon be filmed and the recordings will be allowed to be published later.

The government introduced a law on Wednesday, as announced by the Elysée Palace. Justice Minister Éric Dupond-Moretti said that privacy and the right to one’s own image would of course be respected. Recordings would not be broadcast live, but only published after a verdict. Parliament will discuss the project in May.

The filming of trials has so far only been permitted in France if they are considered to be historically significant – such as the negotiations on the terrorist attack on the satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo”. In such cases, however, the material was intended for the State Archives, not for publication.

It can also be filmed if the judiciary provides for this, for example for a possible resumption. With the project, Dupond-Moretti also wants to strengthen trust in the judiciary. Currently, only 48 percent of the population said they trust her.
