Press guidelines

Legal cases in the Netherlands are - in principle - public. Journalists may be present and do their work. A national guideline has been drawn up for this, the press guideline 2013. This press guideline also applies in the MH17 process. The Court of The Hague can, however, deviate from the press directive and make additional agreements.
