China Sentences Tibetans up to six years in jail
Phayul[Monday, April 15, 2013 20:51]
DHARAMSHALA, April 15: The Intermediate People's court in Rebkong and Tsekhog in Eastern Tibet sentenced four Tibetans up to six years in prison and deprived their political rights for sharing information of Tibetan self-immolators with outsiders.

The four Tibetans are identified as Yangkyab Gyal, Chakthar, Namkha Jam and Gonpo.

According to the Tibetan exile administration, the four have been sentenced for "allegedly committing separatist activities and sending news and photos of Tibetan self-immolators abroad."

Yangkyab Gyal and Namkha Jam are sentenced to six years in jail and deprived their political rights for three years. Chakthar is sentenced to four years and deprived his political rights for two years and Gonpo to three years in prison and deprived his political rights for two years.

In January this year, a Chinese court sentenced Lobsang Konchok, 40, a monk from Ngaba Kirti Monastery, to death with a two-year reprieve and Lobsang Tsering, 31, to ten years in prison. On the same day, six other Tibetans were handed down heavy jail terms for their alleged roles in trying to rescue a Tibetan self-immolator from falling into the hands of Chinese security forces.
