"Film without author"? The "public" TV station WDR puts a journalist under financial pressure. Does it want to silence him?
We reported about this case on 22nd October. The Public Broadcasting Station "WDR", Cologne, has now replied:"Due to the ongoing proceedings, we are currently unable to provide you with any information."
That is why we are now asking them again:
"1) Do I understand you correctly that you are (want to, should, must) stating that you cannot (want to, should, may not) say - with reference to the fact that there is a procedure - whether such procedures are customary at WDR? Regardless of this individual case?
2) Can one conclude from this, that this - quite obviously - represents normal case scenario at WDR, regarding:
a) the procedure in question?
b) the fact that you cannot (want to, should not, may not) say anything about it?
3) And can (want, should, may) you - if necessary - answer our questions at all after the proceedings have been concluded?"
We will stay on the ball. Also regarding the planned reconstruction of the entire process.
