International community urged to intervene in Tibetans facing death penalty
Phayul[Monday, April 13, 2009 10:53]

Dharamsala, April 13: Condemning the death sentences passed by Chinese court on four Tibetans for their alleged involvement in last year’s anti-China protests in the Tibetan capital Lhasa, Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile (TPiE) has called on the international community's intervention to help ensure justice to them.

China's State media reported last week that the Lhasa Municipal People's Court passed death penalty to two Tibetans - Losang Gyaltsen and Loyak. Two other Tibetans, Tenzin Phuntsok and Kangtsuk, were given death sentence with a two-year reprieve, while another Dawa Sangpo got life imprisonment. They were convicted for their alleged role in protests which took place in Lhasa on 14 and 15 March 2008.

“Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile calls on all just and peace loving individuals, organizations and governments to help save and ensure due process of law and justice, in the case of Lobsang Gyaltsen and Loyak, who may or may not be able to appeal to higher competent courts,” TPiE said in a press release statement.

The parliament also appealed the international community to take similar measure in the case of other two facing death sentences with a two-year reprieve.

The statement said the verdict “has been handed down without due process of law by the court".

The statement said that the death sentences announced by the Lhasa Municipal Intermediate People's Court on Lobsang Gyaltsen and Loyak remained to be reviewed by China's Supreme People's Court.
