(TibetanReview.net, Nov16’19) – The Kashag (Cabinet) of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) at Dharamsala, India, has again issued an ambivalent announcement, this time in English on Nov 13, expressing dissatisfaction with the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission’s Oct 14 verdict saying it had defamed former representative at the Washington, DC, Office of Tibet, Mr Penpa Tsering in the grounds it had cited for removing him from this post in Nov 2017. At the same time it has said it respected the verdict for the expedient reason of “maintain the unity and stability within our community”.

The announcement was accompanied by a copy of the justice commission’s verdict and order but there was no apology as ordered in the Oct 14 judgement.

The justice commission’s verdict asked the Kashag to publish an apology in Tibetan and English over Tibetan Freedom, bod.asia, Tibet.net, and tibetonline.tv in both Tibetan and English by Nov 13.

The Kashag had issued the same announcement earlier, in Tibetan, on Nov 1 on its Tibet.net website.

Penpa Tsering is now planning to file a contempt petition against the Kashag, according to Tibetsun.com Nov 16.

The contempt petition, if filed and admitted, will be heard by the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission headed by the new Chief Justice Commissioner Mr Sonam Norbu Dagpo.

The Nov13 judgement came on the last day of the previous Chief Justice Commissioner Mr Kargyu Dhondup’s term of office.
