Most of Lutsang’s 109 monks released, but nearly half expelled

(TibetanReview.net, Mar 23, 2009) — Oslo-based Voice of Tibet radio service said Mar 20 that 103 of the 109 monks of Lutsang Monastery in Mangra (Chinese: Guinan) County in Qinghai Province who had been taken away for political education on Mar 9 were released that day. It named those still in detention as Jamyang Sherab, Jamyang Ngodup, Jamyang Khenrab, Lungtok, Lobsang Thabkhey and Kunsang. They are reported to be senior monks of the monastery in terms of their educational level and are probably suspected of being the leaders of the protest.

However, the authorities ordered monks who had joined the monastery from outside Mangra County to return home, which meant almost half of Lutsang’s total strength.

The monks had been taken to a school to be subjected to a severe course of patriotic education.
