Media crackdowns: two years before Beijing Olympics(3)

Posted by Author on August 14, 2006

Reporters Without Borders, 7 August– (cont’d) The Chinese foreign ministry refuses to make any changes to the Foreign Correspondents Guide, which says any journalist must request prior permission before leaving Beijing to cover something in the interior. Georg Blume, the correspondent of the weekly Die Zeit, was detained for five hours by the Chinese police last month while looking into the building of a dam in the southern province of Yunnan. He was forced to destroy some of his notes and sign a statement undertaking to leave the area.

The deplorable practice of blacklisting journalists has still not been abolished. For example Le Monde retired correspondent Jean-Claude Buhrer, who resides in Switzerland, has been banned from entering China because of his articles about Tibet.

The Chinese police continue to jail, attack or intimidate Chinese citizens who talk to the foreign press. The most dramatic recent case was that of Fu Xiancai, an activist on behalf of people displaced by the Three Gorges dam. He has been left paralysed by an attack that took place after he left a police station where he had been threatened for giving an interview to a German TV station. The official enquiry into the attack concluded that Fu inflicted the injuries on himself in order to appear to be victim. (to be cont’d…)
