China arrests Tibetan Writer in Ngaba
Phayul[Tuesday, April 21, 2015 22:31]
By Phuntsok Yangchen

DHARAMSHALA, April 21: Chinese authorities have arrested a Tibetan writer last week from Ngaba County, known for years of protests against the Chinese government by Tibetans, said Meo Kungam, a former political prisoner currently residing in Australia.

Jo Jayang, also known as Lomig, 27, was detained around 11.30 pm (local time) on Friday for unknown reasons.

A monk of Kirti monastery, Lomig was known for his bold criticisms of the Chinese government in his writings. Kungam noted that many writers have indicated that his writings about 2008 mass uprising in Tibet, self-immolation protests, environmental destruction, denial of freedom of speech and expression in Tibet must have led to his arrest.

The current whereabouts of Lomig remains unknown.

Lomig is a native of Meruma in Ngaba County, Amdo and is son of Dorkho and Zamkar.

Lomig has organized a number of discussions along with other Tibetan writers Gosher, Sengdor, Gurung Pundrol and Shokjang.

Tibetan writer Shokjang was arrested last month along with his brother in law by Chinese police for writing an article on his blog describing the tense situation and Chinese government’s stepping up of patrolling on the streets ahead of the March Tenth uprising anniversary.

Tibetan singers, writers, and artists promoting Tibetan national identity and culture have been the target of China’s ongoing crackdown on intellectuals, especially after the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
