Spotted an error or typo on HKFP? Please email us.

Our corrections policy was adopted on March 3, 2020.

HKFP will correct factual errors as quickly as possible. Falsities, misquotes or misleading statements are among the situations where a correction may be warranted. Journalists should report errors to their editors who will consider a correction.

When issuing a correction, we will publish at the bottom of the article:

  • The day/time of the correction.
  • The information which was corrected.
  • If appropriate, an apology and explanation.

If new information or a new development emerges which contradicts a story or affects the facts, we will consider writing a follow-up story, or will add an update at the bottom of the original piece.

If necessary, we may withdraw a story from the website and replace it – at the same URL – with a correction and explanation.
