MEAA has written to China’s Ambassador to Australia regarding the arrest and detention of MEAA Media member Yang Hengjun.

“We believe this assault on an Australian citizen’s human rights, his interrogation and secret detention, casts a shadow over the working relationship of Australian journalists in China and calls into question their being able to perform their journalistic duties in safety and without harassment or intimidation from authorities,” the letter says.

“MEAA protests the continued detention of our journalist colleague and we urge you to release Mr Yang so that he may return with his wife to Australia.”
