Hong Kong Journalist Held in Beijing, China While Covering Hearing of Human Rights Lawyer

Published on May 16th, 2018 • VOA News

A Hong Kong news cameraman was arrested and handcuffed in Beijing Wednesday while filming one of China’s prominent human rights lawyer attending a local hearing. Video footage from Hong Kong broadcaster Now TV showed the cameraman, Chui Chun-ming, arguing with police before being pushed onto the ground and handcuffed and then led into a police van. Chui, based in Beijing, was with human right lawyer Xie Yanyi who was about to attend a hearing with the Beijing Lawyers Association on decision to revoke Xie’s license to practice law after being charged with subversions following the detention of human rights lawyers and activists in July 2015.
Xie was released on bail in January 2017 after being detained for over 18 months. Chui and Xie were both arrested at the same time Wednesday. The arrests were made followed an argument when police refused to return Chui’s press pass upon a check, according to Now TV
