Hong Kong police issue new rules that limit media accreditation

HONG KONG: Hong Kong’s police force has notified several media associations of new accreditation procedures for journalists, in a letter publicly released on Wednesday.
Police said only those working for media outlets registered with the Hong Kong government or “renowned and well-known” non-local outlets will be recognised.
The Hong Kong Journalists Association (HKJA), Hong Kong Press Photographers Association (HKPA), Hong Kong Press Federation (HKPF) and Hong Kong News Executives were the four associations to receive the letter. Journalists unable to register will face restrictions when reporting on the ground, and potential arrest if they report without government-issued credentials. (DPA)
