Media not affected by security law: SJ

July 4, 2020

Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng today said the media will not be affected by the national security law if they discharge their duties properly.


Ms Cheng made the statement after attending a radio programme this morning.


She said: “A proper discharge of your duties, fairly and objectively in reporting news that have happened cannot possibly cause you into the remit of violating the articles in the national security law.


“In the national security law, there is a very clear requirement of the intent, so if you are objectively, dutifully and professionally reporting the news, there is nothing that is affecting your duties now.”
