I 300 arrestati in Tibet nel 2009 sono ancora in prigione

All’incirca 300 persone arrestate in Tibet lo scorso anno sono ancora in prigione. Undici di questi erano stati condannati al carcere a vita. Continuano perciò impunemente le violazioni dei diritti umani.

Around 300 people, ‘arbitrarily’ arrested in Tibet last year, are still under detention, the Tibetan government-in-exile said here in its report Friday.

‘In 2009, some 300 Tibetans were arbitrarily arrested and they are still under detention. Eleven Tibetans were sentenced to life imprisonment,’ said Ugen Tenzin, executive director of the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, in this north Indian hill station.

‘Human rights violations continue unabated with impunity and there is no sign of let up by the Chinese government,’ said the report released by the centre, which monitors human rights in Tibet.

It said that religious institutions across Tibet continue to face steady decline in the quality of education due to continuous restrictions on activities and movements of Tibetan monks and nuns.

‘The year 2009 in Tibet witnessed intensification of the patriotic education campaign in religious institutions across Tibet, resulting in widespread violation of freedom of religious worship and beliefs,’ the report said.

Four Tibetans, the report claimed, were executed in Lhasa Oct 20 for their alleged role in the peaceful protests against five decades of China’s repression in Tibet.

In 1959, after the start of the Chinese occupation of Tibet, Tibetan spiritual guru the Dalai Lama, 74, fled Tibet along with many of his supporters and took refuge in Dharamsala. He has ever since been heading the government-in-exile from here.
