DHARAMSHALA, December 8: A Tibetan writer and a monk, Dokru Tsultrim, was released from jail on Friday after completion of his four years and six months' sentence in prison.

On May 24, 2010, Dokru Tsultrim, a monk at Ngaba Gomang Monastery was arrested from his monastery. He was then sentenced to four years and six months in prison by Barkham Intermediate Peoples’ court.

Dokru Tsultrim was first arrested in March 2009 for allegedly writing two articles that criticized the Chinese government and supported the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The publication of his private journal in Tibetan language called “Khawai Tsesok” (Life of Snow) was also banned. However, he was freed a month later.

33-year-old Tsultrim was born in Mangra County in Tsolho Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, he joined Ngaba Gomang monastery in 2005.
