Ms.Trine Christensen, General Secretary of Amnesty International, Denmark

A Tibetan delegation consisting of the Dharamsala based Central Tibetan Administration's Department of Information and International Relations’ (DIIR) two officials, Kalden Tsomo, and Tulku Tenzin Delek Rinpoche’s niece Nyima Lhamo are on an advocacy tour in Europe, where they are requesting for an international investigation into the circumstances that led to the sudden death of Nyima Lhamo’s uncle, a highly respected Tibetan Buddhist teacher, environmentalist, and human rights defender in a Chinese prison in July, 2015.

The delegation visited seven European countries including Germany, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Czech Republic, and Switzerland in the past couple weeks, where they have met with various parliamentarians, Tibet support groups, human rights advocacy groups, and are scheduled to attend the Annual UN Human Rights Summit in Geneva on February 21, where Nyima Lhamo will be one of the eleven speakers at the summit.

The advocacy tour, which is jointly organized by the UN & Human Rights Desk, Department of Information and International Relations, in coordination with the Offices of Tibet in Geneva and London, will conclude at the end of March 2017.
