Journalist of LocalPress Denied Entry to LegCo
Dr Chapman Chen, a journalist from LocalPress, arrived at the Legislative Council this afternoon. Staff at the LegCo denied Dr Chen’s entrance and said that a lawmaker filed a complaint against LocalPress which stated that LocalPress is not a media group. The staff also mentioned that LocalPress has been blacklisted by the LegCo.
LocalPress’s journalist demanded to meet with the decision maker of this matter but the request was denied. Security Manager Wu removed our journalist from the LegCo. We are following up on this incident and have left a voice mail on Cyd Ho, a lawmaker previously said to LocalPress’s journalist when her colleague Lee Cheuk-yan was approached that, “I do not see you as a journalist, you are an ordinary citizen to me” and refused to answer the journalist’s question about the NENT Development Plan.
