(TibetanReview.net, Mar10, 2018) – Nepal has made it clear Mar 7 that it will not tolerate any “protests” or “public gathering” by Tibetans living in the country to mark the 59th anniversary on Mar 10 of their national Uprising in keeping with its vows to rein in their ‘anti-China’ activities.

A notice sent out by the exile Tibetan administration’s Tibetan Refugee Welfare Office in Kathmandu Mar 7 appealed to Tibetans living in the country to refrain from organizing protests or public gatherings on the day but, instead, pray from their homes, reported myrepublica.com Mar 9.

The report cited the notice as saying Nepalese officials had, like in the past several years, turned down permission to commemorate the uprising anniversary.

Nepal is home to an estimate more than 20,000 Tibetans, most of them undocumented. The report noted that the Nepalese government’s treatment of the Tibetan refugees had taken a turn for the worse in the last few years with China pumping in cheap interest loans and relaxed FDR (Foreign Direct Investment) schemes in exchange for imposing its will on the small Himalayan country.

It noted that China’s FDR in Nepal had shot to $128 million in 2015, up from $24 million in 2014, besides perks such as a fleet of Mercedes SUVs.
