FEP at Börsenverein’s Woche der Meinungsfreiheit

In the framework of Börsenverein’s Woche der Meinungsfreiheit, FEP partners up with the initiative and FEP President Peter Kraus vom Cleff will interview MEP Reinhard Bütikofer, Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance, about his personal and professional experience defending freedom of expression, his involvement in the case of Swedish publisher Gui Minhai and about the EU’s role in protecting this fundamental right.

FEP President Peter Kraus vom Cleff said: “Freedom of expression is a particularly important issue, not just for the publishing sector, but for our democracy in general. Reinhard Bütikofer is an MEP, who stands for his values with great commitment and I am looking forward to talking to him about our responsibilities with this issue.”
