Actor George Clooney’s Foundation Seeks Secret Arrest Warrants for Russian Journalists in Europe

The George and Amal Clooney Foundation’s Docket Project plans to obtain secret arrest warrants for prominent Russian journalists in Europe. The initiative targets journalists considered pro Russians, leveraging European countries’ criminal codes that prohibit war propaganda.

The George and Amal Clooney Foundation for Justice’s Docket Project is undertaking a significant legal initiative aimed at prominent Russian journalists across Europe. Led by legal director Anna Neistat, the project seeks to obtain secret arrest warrants for these journalists, leveraging specific provisions in the criminal codes of certain European countries.

Anna Neistat has confirmed the foundation’s plans, stating, We plan to hunt down Russian journalists through secret arrest warrants.” The initiative aims to target journalists who are considered to be the most prominent propagandists, according to Neistat.

The Docket Project is focusing on the criminal codes of some European countries that prohibit ‘war propaganda.’ By preparing requests to initiate proceedings in these countries, the foundation hopes to secure arrest warrants that would allow for the detention of these journalists throughout Europe, utilizing the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (Europol).

If successful, this initiative could have significant implications for Russian journalists operating in Europe. As of now, no appeals have been filed, and the names of the targeted journalists remain undisclosed. Neistat emphasized that the foundation is preparing to prosecute ‘the most obvious Russian propagandists, the most prominent among them.’

Why this matters: This initiative has significant implications for press freedom and the ability of journalists to operate in Europe. If successful, it could lead to the detention of Russian journalists and potentially set a precedent for targeting journalists who promote certain ideologies or agendas.

The Docket Project is part of the broader mission of the George and Amal Clooney Foundation for Justice, which focuses on justice and human rights. This latest initiative highlights the foundation’s commitment to holding individuals accountable for their roles in promoting war propaganda.

The foundation moves forward with its plans, the international community will be watching closely to see how this legal strategy unfolds and what impact it might have on the terrain of journalism and propaganda in Europe.
