Lie detector test for CPC cadres in Eastern Tibet to test loyalty to party

DHARAMSHALA, MAY 18: In a bizarre and draconian move, communist party officials in the eastern Tibet’s Sichuan Province have been made to take a polygraph test, known widely as the ‘lie detector test’ to test their loyalty to the party, state media report from the tumultuous Tibetan region of Kardze stated.

The test has been conducted on 168 cadres since the beginning of April. The report in the state stated that as part of a “progressive training of cadres”, “candidates are required to answer questions according their true feelings and ideas”, and the test had been conducted to “verify the authenticity” of the answers from the subject.

Rights group, Washington based International Campaign for Tibet said the test portrays the heightened paranoia and mistrust within the party ranks and that such measures are aimed to further grasp control over the party members.

“The introduction of lie-detectors to test even Communist Party officials represents an escalation of the CCP’s efforts to assert its dominance in a climate it has created of fear and mistrust. It is also an implicit acknowledgement that in the official sphere as well as in the wider society, many Tibetans remain loyal to the Dalai Lama and maintain their strong sense of identity as Tibetans,” ICT stated in a report.

The measures, ICT said, were part of a larger mechanism in play to override control over party members on “an ideological and political” level and “strengthen leadership” amongst the ranks. “The Sichuan provincial authorities have just announced a large-scale training of Party cadres over the next two years. An order issued on April 25, 2017 detailed the plans for training tens of thousands of people,” the rights group said.

Earlier this month, in a rare admission of disarray within the Chinese Communist Party, Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR) discipline watchdog head has condemned party officials who according to intelligence reports have given financial support to the exiled Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama.

The senior CCP official also wrote that the infringements were not limited to financial support but also intelligence leak and involvement in underground secessionist activities. ‘Some have even donated to the 14th Dalai Lama clique, joined illegal underground organizations and provided intelligence to overseas organizations’, Wang wrote in an article published on May 1, 2017 in a magazine run by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission of Discipline Inspection and the Ministry of Supervision.
