(TibetanReview.net, Jun28, 2015) – The human rights situation in Chinese ruled Tibet came in for criticism from several state and interstate members at the 29th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on Jun 24, according to a Tibet.net release Jun 26 from the exile Tibetan administration’s Tibet Bureau, Geneva. Those who expressed concern over the situation in Tibet as a part of their wider criticism of human rights violations in China were reported to include the USA, Germany, the EU, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.

Speaking on behalf of the European Union under the agenda item ‘human rights situations that require the Council’s attention’, Mr Raimonds Jansons, Permanent Representative of Latvia, had urged China to “address the root causes of unrest and foster dialogue with and between different ethnic groups, especially in Tibet and Xinjiang.”

Mr. Frank Jarasch, Counsellor and Head of Political Affairs of Permanent Mission of Germany to the UN, was stated to have called on China to “respect liberation around the birthday of Dalai Lama in July in order to avoid escalation of protest in Tibet”. Reports emerging from Tibet in recent weeks say China had banned Tibetans from marking their exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday, including with ban on holding prayer services and annual religious festivals, as well on community picnics and so on.
