Bos wins damages over his kids’ photos

An Amsterdam court has ordered gossip magazine Weekend to pay finance minister Wouter Bos €4,000 for publishing photographs of his children.

The court ruled that while Bos is a public figure, his children are entitled to privacy. Bos says he will donate the damages he has received to Press Now, an organisation that supports journalists in conflict areas around the world.
