Harassment in China: Foreign correspondents’ club releases report

From being followed by plain clothes policemen to being locked in a hotel conference room, the life of an international journalist in China comes with its challenges. The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China released details on September 13 of six cases of members being harassed by authorities between March and August this year.

With the agreement of the FCCC, the Committee to Protect Journalists periodically posts material that is circulated among its members by email, but is not available to those who don’t have access to the club’s full website. The identities of some of the reporters featured in the latest report have been protected. In some cases, the accounts are reproductions of articles the journalists wrote about the incidents.
