Nepal unyielding on One China policy
Phayul[Saturday, July 05, 2008 12:40]
By Tenzin Sangmo

The Home Ministry on July 4 told the Supreme Court that the Nepalese government was firm in its stand on 'One China' policy.

"The government is aware of every activity carried out on Nepali soil that may pose threat to China and to the friendly relations between the two countries," the Ministry told the Court in response to the Supreme Court's notice on the cause behind the arrest of the three Tibetan activists Tashi Dolma and Ngawang Sangmo President and Vice President of the Regional Tibetan Women's Association and Director of the Tibetan Reception Center Kalsang Chung on June 19 from their residence.

Home Secretary Umesh Prasad Mainali wrote to Supreme Court stating, "They were arrested for involvement in activities against China and activities that threatened the cordial relations between the two countries,"

The three Tibetan community leaders were picked up from their homes last month by plain clothes police officials. The international community has since expressed concern over their arrest with diplomatic missions in Nepal of Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom, the United States and France, on behalf of the EU, acting as its local President said, "We would like to express our strong concern regarding the government of Nepal's recent detention without charge of three members of the Tibetan community in Nepal: Kalsang Chung, Ngawang Sangmo, and Tashi Dolma."

"We note that none of the three participated in violent actions and that Kalsang Chung is not known to have participated in any protests at all," they said calling for the immediate release of the Tibetan refugees.

The Home Ministry of Nepal has stated that the three were held lawfully, and asked the apex court not to intervene for their release.
