FCCHK Expresses Concern Over Press Restrictions
The Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Hong Kong (FCCHK) has expressed deep concern about restrictions against some media organizations from covering the inauguration of Chief Executive-designate John Lee and the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover to China.
In a statement, the FCCHK said that according to some of its members and other reports, at least 10 journalists were denied applications on the basis of “security reasons” that were not otherwise explained.
“The FCCHK views these restrictions – enforced without detailed explanation – as a serious deviation from that stated commitment to press freedom,” the organization said in a statement. “The FCCHK urges the government to immediately reconsider the restrictions to allow all outlets to cover this significant story.”
