DHARAMSHALA, APR. 28: A Tibetan monk who was arrested in the aftermath of the 2008 pan Tibetan uprising and sentenced to ten years' prison was released a year earlier than his slated release date from a Chinese jail in Siling (Ch. Xining). The health of the 44 year old appeared normal, according to a source cited by RFA.

Choktrin Gyatso, a monk from Tsang monastery in Gepasumdo County, was released from Chinese prison on 15 April, Dorjee Tsering of the Dharamsala-based GuChuSum association for former Tibetan political prisoners, told RFA. Gyatso who was arrested during the crackdown post the 2008 uprising in Tibet served nine years out of his ten years' sentence in Chinese prison.

Tibetan prisoners released after serving prison terms are subjected to strict parole conditions and constant scrutiny from authorities years after their release.

Choktrin Gyatso also known as Choktrul Gyatso from Arik village in Malho Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province is the fifth child among the nine siblings born to late Lobe and Tsering Dolma.

Gyatso had stayed in exile in India at the monastic establishment of Sera in South India for over three years from 2002, before returning back to his native.
