Reporters Without Borders Condemn China's Harsh  Sentences to Tibetans in  Lithang

Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage at harsh prison sentences for "espionage" of the three to ten years handed down on November 20, 2007 to three Tibetans by the intermediate court in Kardze, Sichuan province, on the Tibetan border. Rongye Adak was given an eight-year jail sentence on the same day before the same court for being the "instigator of the August 1 rally." He was found guilty of "separatist activism" after giving a speech supporting the Dalai Lama's return.
