The Lindberg case

The newspaper became internationally known when they in 1988 had published an official report on seal hunt, written by Odd F. Lindberg, about Norwegian methods on hunting seal. The report received international attention and lead to a discussion about Norwegian seal hunt and about the freedom of speech.

The newspaper was sued by the seal hunters, and sentenced in two court rounds to pay compensation.

The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, in May 1999, reversed the ruling of the Norwegian court, and marked a change of time in what may be published.
