Dr. Aybay told the participants that the Article 10 regulates the freedom of the press under the framework of the European Convention. This article on one side provides freedom to express the views on one side but, at the same time, makes one a responsible citizen to be very careful while utilising this right. One must use this right with extreme precaution to protect the personal rights of others and of maintaining the public order.

He made a lengthy speech full of important information regarding the background of the decisions taken by judiciaries and the European Courts of Human Rights.
