Group says foreign journalists in China restricted, tracked in 2022

FOREIGN media in China endured strict Covid-19 controls, widespread harassment and constant surveillance in 2022, a press group said today.

Nearly half of foreign journalists in the country were ordered to leave a place or denied access on health and safety grounds last year despite presenting “no health risk by China’s own standards”, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China (FCCC) said in its annual report.
