9:48 Freedom of Speech in the OSCE Countries An Interview with Dunja Mijatović, Representative on Freedom of the Media of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, by Péter Molnár Péter Molnár: What in your view are the main improvements for free speech and freedom of the press since you have been in office?

This was the case with the Danish cartoons. Cartoons are, by nature, in jest. They are mockery of a person, of an idea, of a principle, and that is why they are successful as a message. If we limit the nature of cartoons, then we are limiting a form of journalism. So, we have to be very cautious in the fact that limitations are legitimate and should be applied. I think legitimate limitations actually enhance freedom of expression, because they leave freedom of expression as an open space. But the abuse on the limitations, and the misuse of limitations can actually harm freedom of expression very seriously and provoke a chilling effect.
