Guy Smallman's injured leg, Geneva 2003 A six-year fight for justice by photojournalist Guy Smallman will come to a conclusion in the Swiss city of Lausanne on Friday 20 November.

At 9am the Federal Court will hear Mr Smallman’s final appeal in the case against the State of Geneva. Unusually, this will be heard in public.

Guy Smallman's injured leg, Geneva 2003
The freelance photographer was seriously injured by a police grenade while covering protests against the G8 in Geneva in 2003.

An original judgement found in favour of Mr Smallman, but the State of Geneva was successful with an appeal. Friday’s ruling will decide on whether that decision will be upheld.

If Mr Smallman wins on Friday, he will be able to claim compensation for his injury. Should he lose, he would be liable for legal costs.

NUJ General Secretary Jeremy Dear said: “A journalist was seriously injured by a stun grenade thrown by the police. Anyone who has seen footage of those events would find it hard to believe that the police were not responsible for his injuries. He has been fighting for years for justice and we must hope that this is what will be delivered on Friday.”

Notes

The following website story, dating from November 2008, includes further details about the case and video of the incident:
