OPC Condemns Detention of Bloomberg News Staff Member in Beijing
The Overseas Press Club of America strongly condemns the detention of a Bloomberg News employee in Beijing by Chinese authorities.
In a Dec. 11 news story, Bloomberg said Haze Fan, a news assistant, was detained on Monday on suspicion of endangering national security.
“The Chinese should immediately release Fan,” said Peter Spiegel, chair of the OPC’s Press Freedom Committee and US managing editor for the Financial Times.
The Bloomberg report said Fan, a Chinese citizen, was seen Monday being escorted from her apartment building by plainclothes security officials.
“We are very concerned for her, and have been actively speaking to Chinese authorities to better understand the situation. We are continuing to do everything we can to support her while we seek more information,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson.
According to Bloomberg, Fan began working for the company in 2017 and was previously with CNBC, CBS News, Al Jazeera and Thomson Reuters.
