His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government announced plans to issue Press Cards (Mount Vema Press Pass) or (MV Press Card) to professional newsgatherers working with the Kingdom of Mount Vema overseas. The passes will be wholly owned and controlled by the Vema Seamount Authority and will be introduced next week.
The cards will be used by journalists and other media personnel (employed or freelance) authorized to gather material related to projects and government works related to the Kingdom of Mount Vema for editorial publication in all media - print, broadcast and electronic.
Any news organization can apply to issue the Mount Vema Press Pass to its members, or to those whom it or its members employ, as part of His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government plans to fight fake news in relation to the Kingdom of Mount Vema.
To be eligible a newsgatherer must earn most or all of his/her income on the front-line of the news business. The occupations include reporters and writers, photographers, TV camera operators and crews, and other broadcasting workers such as producers, and researchers.
