UK says Hong Kong rejection of FT journalist visa politically motivated

LONDON, Oct 9 (Reuters) - British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Tuesday he was very concerned by the Hong Kong authorities’ unprecedented rejection of a visa for journalist Victor Mallet, Asia news editor for the Financial Times.

“In the absence of an explanation from the authorities we can only conclude that this move is politically motivated,” he added in a statement.
