(TibetanReview.net, Nov07’19) – A Tibetan man who has been on “watch list” for his outspoken criticism of Chinese rule and policies in Tibet has disappeared after being taken away by police in Nagchu (Chinese: Naqu) City of Tibet Autonomous Region early last month, reported the Tibetan Service of rfa.org Nov 6.

The report said Lhadar, 36, was under an order not to leave his Geso Tsalhi Village in Tarchen Township of Ngchu County when he was taken away.

The report quoted a local source as saying, “It is assumed he was arrested for ‘leaking state secrets’.”

In Tibet, as in the rest of the People’s Republic of China, a person could be held for leaking state secrets for giving out information on any number of matters, ranging from those about protests and official corruption to even reports published in the official media.

The report said Lhadar was known for his strong opposition to China’s policy of repression in Tibet, including the political re-education campaign and the multiplicity of restrictions on the Tibetan people.

“He has always been outspoken on issues concerning the reunion of Tibetan people inside Tibet and in exile, and has great hope for the Dalai Lama’s return to Tibet. Therefore, he was on the ‘watch list’ of the Chinese police,” the report quoted the source as saying.

He was reported to have previously been held and beaten with other Tibetans for protesting against China’s “patriotic education” campaigns. Though released eventually, he was under an order not to leave his local area, the report added.
