今日(2020年7月6日),英国电视监管机构(Ofcom)以广播“强迫电视认罪”为由,认定中国环球电视网(CGTN)违规,并可能吊销其英国广播执照—— 由于伦敦是CGTN在欧洲的总部,此举将使其耗资不菲且正在推进中的欧洲业务陷入混乱。

UK’s TV-regulator Ofcom finds China Global Television Network (CGTN) guilty on all counts concerning an investigation launched after a complaint by the UK's Peter Humphrey concerning the extraction and broadcast of several TV confessions he was forced to make. Both broadcasts were anchored by James Chau. 

As China wages a political influence campaign overseas on Covid-19, at home it has intensified control of the spread of information, media and free speech.

In recent years, under Xi Jinping, China has increasingly used hostage diplomacy, threatening, torturing, and disappearing citizens of other countries to bully its way in the international arena.

How low will tech companies go to do the CCP's bidding? Zoom seems intent to show just how far. 

Safeguard Defenders files additional information to WHO that relates to its current review of CGTN's James Chau as 'goodwill ambassador' and his suitability to continue that role. Evidence provided shows a clear lack of integrity and consistent violations of the WHO code of conduct.


It’s been a year and a half since Safeguard Defenders started assisting victims to hold China’s Party-State TV station, CCTV, responsible for broadcasting illegal and human rights-abusing forced confessions across the globe.
