Despite the fact that the reporter Rasmus Tantholdt presented his credentials as a member of the media, officials attempted to stop the live news hit for TV2 by blocking the lens of the camera and then threatening to smash the camera.
“You welcomed the entire world to come here. Why can’t we shoot? Tantholdt stated to the security personnel, “It’s a public place.” The camera can be broken. You intend to destroy it? By smashing the camera, you are posing a threat to us?
Qatari officials confirmed that security had erred after the video of the fight went viral early Wednesday.
“Endless supply of the group’s legitimate competition license and shooting grant, a conciliatory sentiment was made to the telecaster by on location security before the team continued their movement,” coordinators said.
TV2 stated on its website, “The team was bluntly told that if they didn’t stop filming, their cameras would be destroyed.” Despite the fact that TV2’s crew has the appropriate accreditations and reported from a public location, this is the case.” (Denmark reporter forced)
