Court sentences 3 youths to jail terms

Dharamsala, May 10 – A court in Zoege County has passed jail sentences on two Tibetan brothers and another youth on Thursday (May 7, 2009) according to the Voice of Tibet radio service.

Jampel, aged 29, and Lama, aged 23, of Chashang Taringtsang family of Ngaba County have been sentenced to four years in prison while Namkho, aged 27, of Chashang Kyajigtsang family has been sentenced to three years in jail.

However, exact information about the charges put against the three Tibetan youths is unavailable, according to Tsering, a monk of Kirti monastery who told the radio yesterday that the three are currently held at Zoege County.

Tsering said that the Tibetans who are being tried at various courts in the region are not being provided legal representation by lawyers of their choice, and that the sentencing is as arbitrary as the charges leveled against them.

Ngaba County last year saw one of the bloodiest crackdowns by Chinese security forces after protests in the Tibetan capital Lhasa spread across the restive Himalayan region.
