A Tibetan female cadre in her thirties has been sentenced to five years’ imprisonment. Walza Norzin Wangmo, mother of one, from Kyungchu township of Ngaba, was accused of passing on information through phone and internet about the situation in Tibet, according to a report by Washington D.C based International Campaign for Tibet. However, the ICT said the exact details of the charges against her are not known.

A friend of Norzin wrote after knowing about the latter’s imprisonment, “…To have to spend the best years of your life in a dark prison cell, what misery! That may be your glory, but as you know, an ocean of inexpressible suffering lies behind that accolade of glory. There is no certainty that the experience will not write the final word on your youth and affection, your dreams and ambitions. One thing that makes me happy is that they say you kept your confidence and attitude together while in prison. That is a great reassurance to me, for one. Dear friend!"

In another incident on October 31 a Tibetan man named Paljor Norbu, 81, was arrested by People's Armed Police in Lhasa, reports ICT citing sources in exile. According to another source, Paljor Norbu, who has been in prison before, may have been sentenced to seven years, and his whereabouts is unknown.

Paljor Norbu runs a family printing business in the Barkhor, which has printed and published Buddhist texts for monasteries for some generations. The business has now been shut down by the Public Security Bureau, which also took many of the wooden printing blocks. This indicates that he is not accused of involvement in any protests from March 10 onwards in Lhasa, but possibly in providing publications. The same source said: "The family wants to know what prison he is in because it is getting cold, he is very old, and they want to get warm clothes and blankets to him."
