Exile Tibetans appeal for commuting of Konchok and Kyab’s death sentence
Phayul[Monday, September 23, 2013 21:54]
DHARAMSHALA, September 23: Kirti Rinpoche, the exiled head of the Kirti monasteries in Tibetan area of Ngaba, which has seen much of the self immolation protests by Tibetans since 2009, on Saturday condemned the death sentence of Lobsang Konchok and Dolma Kyab terming the Chinese legal system “unfair”.

“Chinese government earlier sentenced Lobsang Konchok and Dolma Kyab to death for their connection with self-immolation protests without any concrete evidences, which clearly shows China's violation of the international law and disregard to basic human rights,” said Kirti Rinpoche, who was speaking at an event ‘Petition to the United Nations’ organized by National Democratic Party of Tibet.

In January this year, a Chinese court sentenced Lobsang Konchok, 40, a monk of Ngaba Kirti Monastery, to death with a two-year reprieve, and Dolma Kyab, the husband of Tibetan self-immolator Kunchok Wangmo, in August.

Rinpoche also appealed the United Nations and international community to release all the Tibetan political prisoners including the young Panchen Rinpoche.

“This is not only an utter disregard of International laws and basic Human Rights, but also a clear proof of a nation’s systematic violation of civilian rights,” said Gelek Jamyang, President of National Democratic Party of Tibet. “The dictatorial excesses of the Communist regime of China are a crime against humanity and it is a blot on peace at large in the world.”

The campaign was aimed to bring the situation in Tibet to the notice of the United Nations and to solve the crisis inside Tibet. Also present at the event were Dharamshala settlement officer Sonam Dorjee, Tsering Tsomo, Director of Tibetan Centre for Human Rights, and Democracy and leaders of Tibetan NGOs.

As a part of the campaign, songs were performed in honor of Tibetan self-immolators.

Since 2009, 121 Tibetans have set themselves on fire in Tibet calling for freedom in Tibet and return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile. A number of Tibetans were also persecuted for their alleged involvement in the self-immolation protests in various regions of Tibet.
