Human rights bodies condemn Zurich police's harassment of press photographer

National News // April 15, 2020

Two major human rights bodies have severely condemned Zurich police after they allegedly harassed a press photographer who was taking pictures of the King of Thailand’s plane when it arrived at the airport last week.

Seemingly the police were acting on a request from the King’s security detail after they spotted the cameraman. The Thai king is famously publicity shy. 

Amnesty International and Reporters Without Borders say the incident is very worrying – especially reports that the police checked the photographer’s pictures before releasing him. 

The police say their action was not carried out on behalf of a foreign monarch – and the man was not arrested.
