Three Tibetan Monks Flee China After Arrest Warrant Issued

Posted by Author on December 24, 2010

NTD TV, Dec. 2010 –

On November 15th, 2010 these three Tibetan monks arrived in Dharamsala, India after escaping from China. They had feared for their lives after holding a protest against Chinese communist rule.

Their names are Lobsang Norbu, Khedup Gyatso, and Kunga Rinchen. They’re from a Tibetan region of Sichuan province called Kardze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.

This man translated for the monks.
[Lobsang Cheodok, Translator for Tibetan Monks]:
“In 2009, on September 10th, since the Chinese regime issued an arrest warrant against us, with the help of some of our relatives, we decided to flee the region and we spent the whole year hiding inside hills, nomadic areas and forests. And then ultimately, we escaped to India this year.”

In September 2009 they had carried out a nonviolent protest against the rule of the Chinese regime. At their monastery in Sichuan, they hoisted the Tibetan national flag and put up posters stating that Tibet is an independent country.

They say they had put their own names on the posters to make sure no other monks got into trouble for their actions. The regime issued arrest warrants for them the same day.

After a year in the wilderness, the monks crossed the Himalayas into Nepal, and then to India.

The three monks have now testified before the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy.

[Lobsang Cheodok, Translator for Tibetan Monks]:
“We don’t have freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and basic fundamental human rights inside Tibet. And we are from Gonsar monastery. It is in Tibet. Since we do not have these human rights inside Tibet, we decided to speak against this human rights violation.”

Local Chinese police had offered a reward of 20 thousand yuan to anyone who gave information about their whereabouts. This was later increased to 50 thousand when no one came forward.

The risk of being arrested finally prompted the monks to leave China on October 7th 2010.
