(TibetanReview.net, Jul24, 2015) – China is said to have released a young Tibetan mother of two whom it had detained in Ngaba (Chinese: Aba) County of Sichuan Province on Jul 15 when she staged a lone street protest. Wangmo, 22, of Village no. 3 in the county’s Meuruma Township, was held shortly after she started a lone protest march on the township’s main street, carrying a portrait of Tibet’s exile spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama.

She was given a hero’s welcome by her fellow-villagers, said the exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala, India, on its Tibet.net website Jul 23. It did not say when she was released and under what conditions.

Release on bail or without charge, though not unheard of, is very rare in China.

Wangmo had protested against the repressive policies of the Chinese government, said the exile administration in an earlier Tibet.net statement Jul 21. Both it and Dharamshala-based Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy Jul 22 said the whereabouts of the young mother after her detention by the county police had remained unknown.

The centre had said the woman, daughter of Shechen and Lagyal, was married to a man named Tenzin from Village No. 5 and that the two had two children.
