Reports from Foreign Correspondents Club (FCC) state that China is effecting constraints on media freedom each passing time.
The reports further broach on China inflicting harm, denying visas, and hacking accounts of journalists that are on the government’s bad book.
Journalists in China’s mainland and Hong Kong are also susceptible to such constraints.
China, however, has termed the FCC which serves as a representation of foreign journalists in the country, illegal.
Allegations of human rights abuse have in recent times become quite rampant in Xinjiang and Hong Kong.
Foreign journalists are said to be assaulted so often that a lot of journalists have had to leave the mainland.
According to a report by BBC News, Chinese working in the FCC has had their families harassed by authorities.
Reporters like Cueng Lei and Haze Fan have been in authority custody for more than a year for allegedly intruding in cases that deal with state security.
In the report, a journalist claimed that a source was sentenced to prison after having sent a screenshot to the journalist.
Other sources who have faced harassment from authorities have been intimidated to cancel meeting journalists.
Reporters covering Uyghurs stories disclosed they have been followed during their research into the murder of Uyghurs that has created so much controversy regarding the Chinese government.
China correspondent for the BBC John Sudworth had done a lot of reporting on the story of the murder in 2021 and had been pressured to leave China for Taiwan.
He and his family were intentionally followed to the airport to ensure he and his family were gone.
Several correspondents have reported constant harassment.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Hua Chunying, however, said last year that foreign journalists in China should count themselves fortunate.
