(TibetanReview.net, Dec10’19) – As the exile Tibetans’ apex judicial tribunal awaits compliance by the cabinet members of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) with its Oct 14 judgment, ordering apology by Dec 27 to dismissed former Representative at the Office of Tibet, Washington, DC, Mr Penpa Tsering, for citing defamatory grounds for his dismissal, it has on Dec 9 penalized their counsel, Mr Lobsang Dakpa, for making contemptuous remarks against it for the judgment.

The Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission has revoked his license to practice before any tribunal under the CTA. It has also ordered him to offer a ceremonial scarf to His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s throne at the Tsuglakhang, McLeod Ganj, and make a hundred butter lamps offering within 15 days as symbolic atonement for his erroneous action.

Lobsang Dakpa’s initial contempt hearing was fixed for Dec 6 but he failed to appear and he was given further time till Dec 9. However, he failed to appear even then and the judgment was delivered in his absence.

Further penalty for failing to comply with these orders could include loss of voting rights, loss of right to stand for elections and debarment from being selected for or appointed to any post under the CTA.

The justice commission has held him in contempt for making baseless accusations against it for its decisions, mocking its procedure and reputation, blatantly inciting social disturbances, and damaging the exile Tibetans’ democratic process.
