RTS appeal judgement on weapons law

National News // Sept. 24, 2020

Swiss French Television says it will appeal after one of its journalists was fined for breaking weapons laws.

NotLessOrEqual RTS appeal judgement on weapons law

It stems from a report in April last year which showed how easy it was to make a handgun using a 3D printer with plans downloaded from the internet.

The report showed the reporter making a gun on a 3D printer.

The Geneva court ruled that’s illegal. RTS TV say they will defend the right of free speech and the report was not breaking the law – but had the aim to safeguard it.
