Chinese consulate in Canada holding reporter's passport hostage

The Chinese embassy in Canada is withholding the passport of a Canadian journalist who, after applying for a visa to visit China, refused to provide details about his personal life in Canada, reported The Epoch Times.

According to that newspaper, Zhang Zhaopei, a reporter for New Tang Dynasty Television and a naturalized Canadian citizen, wanted to visit his family, whom he had not seen in nine years.

The Chinese government previously has interfered with the Falun Gong-affiliated station that emphasizes human rights, pressuring a satellite carrier to drop the station's signal in China, and trying to block its reporters from attending Chinese government press conferences and events in Canada, according to another story in The Epoch Times.
