ARBOLEDA LOPEZ, Adriana Patricia. Colombian Constitutional Court's vision about freedom of speech and information rights: a relationship from the rights to a good name, the privacy and the honor. Rev. Lasallista Investig. [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.2, pp.159-167. ISSN 1794-4449.

The fundamental rights are those inherent to a person given his/her human condition, and they are established in the political constitution of Colombia and in international treaties. This article approaches the concept and the scope of the rights to a good name, the honor and the privacy, and their relation with the fundamental rights to free speech and information, from the vision provided by the constitutional court in its jurisprudence. It can be seen that the court has been careful to establish rules and limits for the information broadcasted by individuals or by mass media, in order to prevent free speech and information from violating the rights to a good name, the honor and the privacy of third parties.

Keywords : Fundamental rights; privacy; honor; good name; information; free speech.
