When the Press Complaints Commission (PFU) gives their assessment on Tuesday is the interest great. The Royal Family widespread appeal to See and Hear treated as the PFU. Media interest in the appeal is so great that the PFU has found it necessary to rent space at a hotel in the city center to meet the influx of journalists.
The appeal is made by the Royal Court "in recognitions with the royal family" and included the original result in 8 numbers of the magazine Se og Hør. Three of the cases was rejected because they were obsolete. "The complaint comes as the result of a development where respect for private life constantly are put under pressure by Se og Hør," writes the court, seeking a clarification from PFU to what extent the press believes that the royal family's privacy is protected.
Se og Hør on their side rejects this as a false basis and says PFU task is to assess the specific content in individual cases. The outgoing Secretary General of the Norwegian Press AssociationPer Edgard Kokkvold has called the case historically because of the scale and number of matters were complained are maid.
