DHARAMSHALA, MAY 18: Former North America Representative Penpa Tsering has filed a legal case against the Kashag over its decision to release him from duty as the North America Representative of the Office of Tibet last year.

Asked if his move could lead to more discord within the exile Tibetan community, Tsering said there is no reason for any discord just because of his taking the matter to the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission. "There are two options to prevent discord if any, one of the Kashag taking its responsibility or the court clearing this matter," Tsering told reporters here at Ghangchen Kyishong, the seat of the Tibetan government in exile, officially known as the Central Tibetan Administration.

The Kashag declined to comment on the matter but said it will respond in the near future .

The Tibetan cabinet (Kashag) earlier last year said that ousting of North America Representative Penpa Tsering was solely due to his "failure to assume his duties appropriately and in the manner befitting of the office, as seen by the Kashag." Tsering was replaced replaced by Education Minister Ngodup Tsering in December 2017.

Following the official notice Nov. 7, 2017, the incident sparked debates and discussions within the Tibetan diaspora with some saying the mood was akin to the campaign season disarray that was witnessed in the run up to the Tibetan general elections.

The former Speaker of the Tibetan parliament refuted all the allegations against him saying they were “false, incomplete and manipulative,” at a press conference on December 6, 2017. He said that while the executive body of the Central Tibetan Administration led by Dr. Lobsang Sangay has the authority to terminate him, he rejects the allegations which he said was an “attempt to malign his image.”

The row over the termination of Penpa Tsering’s tenure in Washington office began on Nov. 7 when the Kashag made a public announcement that former education minister Ngodup Tsering would be the new NA envoy. Later the Kashag made public a 10-point statement which cited growing “performance and trust deficit” as well as “insubordination” by Penpa Tsering.

The row became one of the most widely discussed issues within the Tibetan community on social networking and microblogging websites.

Earlier in March during the Tibetan parliament's budget session, around 70 people by the name of “Truth Seeking Volunteers” from various parts of India and USA carried out protests at the Gangchen Kyishong’s basketball court in the premises of the Central Tibetan Administration demanding impeachment of the incumbent President of the Central Tibetan Administration on “legal, ethical and moral” grounds.
