CGTN statement on the Ofcom ruling
Updated 20:34, 29-May-2020

China Global Television Network (CGTN) is disappointed with the ruling of UK's communications regulator Ofcom. CGTN is committed to providing accurate, timely and objective news and information with diverse and balanced views for our global audience. As a Chinese media network that has been broadcasting in the UK for over 17 years, we have responsibility to present Chinese viewpoints and perspectives in our news reporting, which is what our viewers expect.

Since protests broke out following the introduction of the Fugitive Bill, frequent violent incidents in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) have had a serious impact on Hong Kong's social stability, economic development, and the safety of residents' lives and property, and have caused widespread attention in the international community. We have noticed that some media are not objective in reporting violent protests in the HKSAR. CGTN has provided more voices to the global audience and made it possible for them to understand the whole picture.

CGTN has attached importance to complying with the local regulations in all the countries into which it broadcasts, and looks forward to continuing to cooperate in a just, fair and transparent way with Ofcom.
