HKJA condemns Urumqi Police assault on TVB & nowTV's news reporter and cameraman (Chinese Only)


記協強烈譴責烏魯木齊當局侵害本港新聞工作者
 
 
  香港記者協會驚悉,三名到新疆首府烏魯木齊採訪群眾示威事件的香港記者被執法人員毆打及扣留,本會對此表示強烈抗議,並強烈譴責當局侵害新聞工作者的正當採訪工作和人身安全,要求當局立即釋放三名記者。
 
  本會向多方了解,獲釋事發時,多名中外記者下午在烏市人民路段採訪群眾示威事件,警方突然施放多枚催淚彈,人群四散時,now寬頻電視新聞攝影師林振威、無綫電視新聞部記者林子豪和攝影師劉永全突然被多名武警用武力按在地上,雙手被扭在身後,其中兩名攝影師雙手更被當局以手銬物體反扣在身後,其後更被帶返公安機關。據了解,林子豪肩膊受傷。
 
  記協認為,有關記者身分明確,出現誤會的可能性甚低,武警的做法,難免令人推論,當局是不希望有關過程為外人知悉,是公然踐踏新聞自由、企圖剝奪公眾知情權之舉,本會對此予以強烈譴責。
 
  更令人難以接受的,是記者進行的,是正常及正當不過的採訪活動,當局竟然以類似拘捕疑犯的手法對待他們,這不單是對新聞工作者的侮辱,亦是對他們人身的無理傷害。本會要求當局立即釋放有關新聞工作者,並向他們道歉,以及就他們可能蒙受的損失作出賠償。
 
  本會必須指出,新聞工作者的採訪資料,包括錄影帶,屬於新聞工作者及其所屬新聞機構的財產,當局不能加以損毀或充公。
