Four held in Karze for shouting for Tibet’s independence

(TibetanReview.net, Mar 20, 2009) — The police in Karze county of Sichuan Province arrested four Tibetan youths on Mar 14 after they staged a demonstration, shouting for Tibet’s independence, reported the exile Tibetan government’s Tibet.net Mar 18. It said the four called for unity and solidarity against the Chinese authorities’ ruthless persecution and inhuman treatment of Tibetans across the plateau since March last year.

The report named the four as Namsel Dorjee, 28; Karma Norbu, 17; Rinchen Wangsel, 16, and Sangye Tsering, 17. It added that they belonged to Susada Gechung village in Thingkha town.

The report said Karma Norbu’s father Jamyang was already in jail after being arrested for taking part in a demonstration last year, and was in poor health. In addition, Jamyang’s two other sons, Sangpo and Dorjee, were serving three-year jail terms each for expressing opposition to Chinese government policies.
