Rally in Tamar to support ATV
(08-28 19:26)

Hundreds of ATV staff and supporters have staged a rally outside the government headquarters in Tamar, calling for the withdrawal of an investigation report published by the Communications Authority.
They say the report, which accuses majority investor Wong Ching of exercising de facto control over the broadcaster, is politically motivated, RTHK reports.
ATV was fined HK$1 million last week for allowing its majority investor, Wong Ching, to exercise de facto control over the company, even though he was not a director or principal officer.
The Communications Authority also ordered its chief executive, James Shing Pan-yu, to step down by next Monday.
The ATV supporters were not the only group who rallied outside the government headquarters.
Dozens of people, led by Civic Party legislator Claudia Mo Man-ching, also showed up to call for the immediate approval of more free-to-air TV lisences.
