A Tibetan released after 8 years in prison

Listen to Tsering Kyi's report on Jampal, a Tibetan man from Amdo Machu who was swept up along with thousands of others in the sweeping arrests that took place following the 2008 protests across Tibet.

Jampal was recently released on May 1, 8 years into a 13 year sentence that he had received. The reasons for his early release is not clear but many speculations point to his poor physical condition.
