Last of the Losar peace marchers of Lutsang monastery released

(TibetanReview.net, Apr 15, 2009) — China had released a few days earlier the last six of the 109 monks of Lutsang Monastery in Mangra County of Qinghai Province it had arrested in Feb 2009, reported Oslo-Based Voice of Tibet Apr 13. It named the released monks as Jamyang Sherab, Jamyang Ngodup, Jamyang Khenrab, Lungtok, Thabkhey Gyatso and Kunsang.

The six were not among those released on Mar 20, apparently because they were perceived to be the ringleaders deserving of further punishment. It was not clear on or under what conditions the six were released.

The authorities had rounded up the 109 monks after they staged a peaceful protest march on Feb 25, the first day of the Tibetan New Year this year. They were reportedly taken to a school where they were subjected to severe rounds of patriotic education.

Also reported released were two other Tibetans, Tashi Dhondup, 27, a government official, and his younger brother, Jinpa Gyatso, 25. Tashi was held on Mar 2 from his home in Sumdo village, with his laptop and cellphone confiscated, while Jinpa was whisked away from Qinghai’s capital Xining, where he was studying.
