HKJA strongly protests against the arrest of Now News cameraman in Beijing

A Beijing-based camerman from Now TV News in Hong Kong was handcuffed and arrested in Beijing during the reporting of a hearing on lawyers in Beijing this morning. He was pushed onto the ground by more than five men, including uniformed public security officers, and taken into a police vehicle. We express strong indignation and lodge strong protest against the Beijing authorities.

We demand the Beijing authorities to immediately release the cameraman and stop any uncivilised acts and suppression against the reporting work of journalists. We also demand Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor to urge the Central Government to release the cameraman and express the concern of Hong Kong people to them. We also urge the mainland authorities to protect the personal safety and the lawful right of reporting of Hong Kong journalists.
