(TibetanReview.net, Feb11, 2015) – A Chinese court in Tibet’s capital Lhasa has jailed a Tibetan man for two and years on Feb 5 for alleged anti-state activities. While the exact convictions remain unclear, Kalsang Tsering, 48, was accused of communicating information to people outside the country, having pictures of the Dalai Lama in his mobile handset, and attempting illegal border crossing.

Kalsang Tsering originally belongs to Markham (Chinese: Mangkang) County of Chamdo (Changdu) Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region, but was working in Lhasa as a driver. He was arrested in Gyantse (Jiangzi) County of Shigatse (Xigaze) Prefecture, some three months earlier.

Kalsang Tsering was previously detained for about five months over 2012 and 2013 apparently for protest activities against Chinese rule. His brother Ngodup was arrested for leading one of the Tibet uprising protests in 2008, released in 2012, and remains in poor health.
