Dharamsala, September 29 – The Ngaba County Intermediate People’s Court on Saturday (September 25, 2010) sentenced a Tibetan man named Dhonko Gyakpa to 4 years in prison for concealing the whereabouts of and providing shelter to another Tibetan named Chodhar who was being looked for by the police, Kanyag Tsering, a Tibetan monk from Ngaba now living here said.

Chodhar, 34, a monk of Ngaba Kirti monastery was sentenced in April this year to 13 years’ jail for his alleged role in leading anti government protests in the area during the nationwide protests in 2008. He had gone into hiding for almost a year. The local government had announced a reward of around 300000 Chinese Yuan for information about Chodhar, who was nabbed from Dhonkho Gyakpa’s house on August 25, 2009.

Dhonkho and his wife Soelha were also arrested and detained for over a month but released alter on bail payment of 15000 Yuan. However, the Chinese authorities arrested him and his wife Soelha again. The authorities later released Dhonkho’s wife but held Dhonko in detention.

Dhonkho had earlier been jailed for five years on charges of pasting posters with anti government contents in the streets of Ngaba County during Chinese government's patriotic reeducation campaign in 1998.
