CTA Information Secretary Dhardhon Sharling resigns

DHARAMSHALA, Dec. 13: The DIIR Information Secretary (Equivalent) Ms Dhardhon Sharling has resigned from her post, drawing much speculation in the exiled Tibetan Diaspora.

On a call with Phayul last Sunday, Sharling gave the same reason for her resignation as she cited in her blog post published yesterday.

The blog post says that she is resigning to rejoin school this spring semester beginning January 22, 2019, to continue her study (PhD in Communication at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst). “Failing to do so might jeopardize my admission and funding from the school, both of which have been on a continuous enrolment since September 2016,” she writes.

She wrote that she has completed the two-year contract with DIIR (October 2016-October 2018) as a Special Appointee.

She said that the Tibetan president (Sikyong) fully supports her resuming her doctorate studies and expressed her confidence in being able to contribute to the cause better after completing her studies.

Her resignation becomes effective January 11, 2019

In the meantime, speculation is rife that Sharling could be resigning to testify as a witness for Case No. 20, between the Tibetan president Lobsang Sangay and former North America envoy Penpa Tsering.

Penpa Tsering filed a defamation case in the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission (SJC) in Dharamshala this May for “false accusations” against him in ousting him from the post of representative of the office of Tibet in Washington DC by Sangay’s administration in November last year.

The Kashag had cited Sharling’s confiding in Sikyong of Penpa Tsering’s advice not to join the Sangay’s administration as one of the ten reasons for sacking Penpa Tsering.

In a new development in case no. 20, the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission (SJC) has asked the CTA president to rewrite the written statement as per SJC’s instruction.

However, a Tibetan legal expert confirmed that it is not necessary for Sharling to resign if she is to testify in the case.

It is also learned that Sharling has confided in close friends a long time ago that she wants to resume her academic career.
