Primus has successfully represented the publishing house VESTI at court in a dispute with Latvian citizen Gulam Mohammad Gulami, who had brought an action for the retraction of defamatory information and damages.

In 2015, VESTI had published in its Russian-language Vesti Segodnya ("Vesti Today") newspaper three articles which, in Gulami's opinion, contained defamatory statements.

On February 21st, the court of first instance ruled that Gulami's claim had no merit and dismissed it in full.
