Concern over widespread HR violation in Tibet by multiple nations at UNHRC session
[Friday, March 17, 2017 20:49]
By Tenzin Dharpo

DHARAMSHALA, MAR. 17: The deteriorating human rights situation in occupied Tibet and Xinjang was prominently raised at the ongoing 34th session of the United Nation Human Rights Council on Wednesday by several nations in addition to the European Union in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Several governments including the United States of America, the European Union, Canada, France and Germany once again raised China’s disregard of international standard of human rights and wide-spread cases of rights violation in China including Tibet and Xinjang,” the exile government run Tibet.net reported.

The EU urged China to hold in regard the “cultural diversity and freedom of religion, not least in Tibet and Xinjiang” while expressing its profound concern over the arrest, detention and conviction of human rights defenders and lawyers and the reported harassment of their families, including Tashi Wangchuk, a 31-year old Tibetan language right advocate who had been arbitrarily detained by the Chinese authorities and awaiting trial on the charges of “inciting separatism”.

Tibet.net further reported that Germany remained concerned about the situation of human rights particularly in “Western regions of Tibet and Xinjiang” which remain “widespread”. “Germany closely follows a growing number of cases, including Tashi Wangchuk. Germany urged China to respect fundamental rights and rule of law and immediately release all detained human rights defenders,” the report further stated.

The governments of United States and Canada were unified in their alarm over silencing dissent with force, sentencing and detaining lawyers and human rights defenders in the region.

The proceeding was further informed of the ongoing situations with Dawa Tsultrim, UN Advocacy officer, representing the ‘Society for Threatened People’ delivering a statement on religious repression in Tibet. He called upon council’s urgent attention to the on-going wide-scale demolitions and destruction at Larung Gar and Yachen Gar, attesting the unified human rights concern by several governments during the ongoing session.
