China: Tibetan TV news presenter arrested in eastern Tibet

Posted by Author on September 18, 2008

Reporters Without Borders, Sep. 18, 2008-

Reporters Without Borders is deeply worried about Tibetan TV presenter Washu Rangjong’s arrest by Chinese military police officers at his home in Amdo Golok, in the east Tibetan district of Sertha, on 11 September. Washu is also a singer and the author of two books on Tibetan culture.

“The Chinese authorities must explain why this journalist and defender of Tibetan culture has been arrested,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The case highlights the climate of fear prevailing in the Tibetan regions, where many people have been arrested arbitrarily since the events in March.”

Washu has presented news in Tibetan for local television for the past four years at least. Born in 1983 and the father of four children, he taught Tibetan before becoming a journalist.

Tsultrim Woeser, a monk, told Reporters Without Borders that the Washu family has not been informed of the reason for his arrest.

Tibetan singer and TV presenter Jamyang Kyi was arrested at her office at state-owned Qinghai Television in Xining, in the western province of Qinghai, in April and was released a month later after paying bail.
