Protecting The Press

Last Saturday, two reporters were allegedly harassed by a security guard at the Pudu UTC Immigration Department while attempting to cover a story on passport renewals. As a result, several groups have called for protection for journalists and reporters. We look into the incident and what is needed to create a safer environment for members of the media.
