Tibetan county gov’t employee arrested, brother missing, in Qinghai

(TibetanReview.net, Mar 18, 2009) — Tashi Dhondup, an employee of Mangra County (Chinese: Guinan) in Tsolho (Chinese: Hainan) Prefecture of Qinghai province was arrested from his home in Sumdho Township on Mar 12 for no known reasons. He was grabbed from his home and his Personal Computer and mobile phone seized, according to Dharamsala-based Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) Mar 16.

Tashi, 27, had previously served in the People’s Armed Police (PAP) for three years and later worked as a schoolteacher in his hometown. He is married and has two daughters. He was reported to be held at the county police detention centre.

Also, Tashi’s younger brother Jinpa Gyatso, 25, a student in Xining, was reported missing, raising fears that he too might have been arrested, according to Phayul.com Mar 16.

Mangra has been under intense security restrictions after monks of the local Lutsang monastery carried out a peaceful protest march on Feb 25, the first day of the Tibetan New Year. On Mar 9, 109 of the monks were forcibly taken away to an undisclosed location for patriotic education.
