Apex Tibetan court warns Kashag to apologise in Case.no 20 or face consequences
Phayul[Monday, November 25, 2019 20:08]
By Tenzin Dharpo

DHARAMSHALA, Nov. 25: The apex Tibetan court on Friday issued a new directive to President Dr. Sangay led Kashag (Cabinet) that warned of punitive measures in the case of failure to apologize to the plaintiff in the ‘Case no. 20’ by December 27.

The Supreme Justice Commission, the judiciary wing of the exile Tibetan government known officially as the Central Tibetan administration, said that failure to abide by the directive within the deadline would result in the ineligibility to run for public office and the voting rights of all the members of the Cabinet, including the President, revoked.

The new development in the Case.no 20 comes days after the Kashag failed to offer apologies officially by the set deadline to the plaintiff and former Speaker of the Tibetan parliament Penpa Tsering as ordered by the court earlier in October. The SJC ruled that the defamatory allegations made against the plaintiff were unsubstantiated, and ordered the defendant to issue apology and clarification through CTA official outlet.

The Kashag has, however fulfilled a part of the judgement, wherein the court ordered payment of 98,000 rupees (1,400 USD approx.) as fee for Penpa Tsering’s lawyer.

The defamation case was filed in May 2018 by Penpa Tsering, the former representative of the office in North America, against Kashag led by Lobsang Sangay, Sikyong (President) of the Central Tibetan administration.

The then Chief Justice Commissioner Kargyu Dhondup led jury acquitted the plaintiff Penpa Tsering from all the charges formulated in the 10 points clarification posted in the official websites of Central Tibetan Administration (CTA).
