Statement on Government ban of online media from attending press conference held by Carrie Lam

The Hong Kong Journalists Association today issued a statement on the Government’s decision to bar online media representatives from attending the press conference held by Chief Executive-elect Carrie Lam. Our stance is as below:
1. HKJA expresses deep regret and disappointment with the decision;
2. HKJA reiterates the existing policy contravenes the Basic Law and Bill of Rights Ordinance, which safeguard freedom of speech and the press. It is also unfair;
3. The Ombudsman has ruled the current policy unreasonable and suggested flexibility before completion of a policy review.
4. Chief Executive-elect Carrie Lam has signed a charter to uphold press freedom, in which there is a pledge to allow professional online media organisations to attend government press conferences and events. We hope she will honour her pledge at the earliest time.
