(TibetanReview.net, Aug15’19) – One Tibetan Buddhist monk of Kirti Monastery in Ngaba (or Ngawa, Chinese: Aba) Prefecture in what is now part of China’s Sichuan Province has been jailed for four years recently while the fate of two others from the same monastery remain unknown following their arrests at different times since late 2017, reported the Tibetan Service of rfa.org Aug 14. The charges against all three, as well as their whereabouts, remain unknown.

Lobsang Thabke, 37, was tried and sentenced on Jul 30 following his arrest last year. He had previously graduated from the Buddhist Youth School, which was formerly run by Kirti Monastery but later taken over and then shut down by Chinese authorities.

Lobsang Dorje, 36, was arrested around Aug 2018.

Another Kirti monk, Thubpa, 32, was taken away by Chinese police in the night from Ngaba’s Trotsik monastic college towards the end of 2017.

Thubpa was previously arrested during the 2008 protests, which took place across the Tibetan Plateau, for shouting political slogans and burning a Chinese flag. Also, his father, Kalsang, was stated to have been arrested and jailed for shouting slogans against the Chinese rule in Tibet on Mar 16, 2011.
