Cobalt has helped Fortumo file a complaint to the Press Council regarding incorrect and misleading articles and headlines in the Aripaev and Postimees publications. 

According to Cobalt, the complaint involves “a series of articles about Fortumo published in Aripaev and Postimees. The headlines in the articles gave the impression that Fortumo had signed a deal with the Myanmar military junta that carried out the coup in Myanmar and created the impression that the coup would be funded in this way." The firm added: "the Press Council took the position that Aripaev and Postimees violated the section of the Journalists Code of Ethics requiring headlines not to mislead the audience. The title and content of the articles must be consistent.”

Cobalt’s team included Managing Associate Monika Koolmeister and Senior Associate Kadri Michelson.
