Tibetans Held Over Internet
Sharing news during 2008 protests lands Tibetans in jail.
HONG KONG-At least 50 Tibetans have been detained or sentenced for passing
information relating to protests that swept through Tibetan regions of
in the wake of rioting in Lhasa last year, a press freedom group said.
"The latest to be convicted is a netizen called Dasher who has been given
10-year prison sentence on a charge of 'separatism' for sending reports
photos of the March 2008 protests," Paris-based Reporters Without Borders
(RSF) said in a statement on its Web site.
It said Dasher was convicted and sentenced by an intermediate court in
in late February, although the exact date of his trial was unknown.
He is currently being held in Lhasa's Chushur prison, the statement said.
Father also sentenced
The group quoted "a representative of the National Democratic Party, a
exile organization" as saying the reason for his conviction was his
and photos of the protests.
Dasher is also the son of Adri Rinpoche, head of a Tibetan Buddhist
who is also being sentenced to prison by the Chinese authorities, RSF
U.S.-based lama and Tibetan Buddhist teacher Arjia Rinpoche said the
on those using the Internet shows the ruling Chinese Communist Party is
of further demonstrations and protests.
"What is at the root of an uprising? It's the exchange of information,"
"After the demonstrations in March 2008, the news came out very fast on
Free Asia, Voice of America, the BBC, and afterwards it spread very
"There are two aspects to their control of information. One is that they
afraid that information will spread quickly, so that the demonstrations
increase, and the other is that other people inside China will hear about
demonstrations," he said.
"They care very much about public opinion, not just in the Tibetan region
also in the areas populated by Han Chinese as well."
RSF said it had verified at least 50 detentions of Tibetans with the
based Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy, "for sending
out of China."
"Most of this material was sent via the Internet, which is under very
surveillance in Tibet," the group said.
It cited the detention in mid-February of Tashi, a 24-year-old Tibetan
Rata, a village in the district of Sog, in eastern Tibet.
Tashi was accused of having contact with people overseas and watching
political videos online, and is currently being held in Nagchu district.
Another Sog district resident, known by a single name, Gyaltsing
spelling, Gyaltsen], was handed a three-year jail-term in December for
"communicating information to contacts outside China" after he downloaded
photos of the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, whom
blames for inciting the protests.
The group quoted Tibetan journalists as saying that a campaign of
in Sog had led to the arrest of several Tibetans for refusing to comply
the "Love your religion, love your country" campaign.
