Dad at 13 Media Ban

After the story about a 13-year-old boy who allegedly fathered a baby with a 15 year old hit the media last week a High Court in England yesterday ruled Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights – to a private and family life – took precedence over the Article 10, rights of the press to freedom of expression. According to The Independent the judge banned any further reporting. Thank goodness for common sense. An inquiry into whether payments by two newspapers broke the PCC code in relation to the treatment of minors has been announced.
