The Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile has sought the intervention of the Nepalese prime minister for fair treatment of Tibetans in Nepal and to help release all the Tibetans arrested during the recent peaceful demonstrations in Nepal. In an appeal letter forwarded to the prime minister Girija Prasad Koirala on 21 June, Dolma Gyari, the deputy speaker of the Tibetan Parliament noted the cordial relationship shared between Nepal and Tibet during the 7th century and from 17th to 20th century until the pre-1959 Tibet. The deputy speaker said many Tibetans are killed, tortured and continues to be imprisoned since a series of peaceful demonstrations against the repressive Chinese policies, which swept across Tibet in March this year. "To show solidarity to their effort and the common cause of Tibet, the Tibetan refugees in Nepal, like other Tibetans in diaspora, hold peaceful protests and rallies. Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile is saddened to hear that many Tibetans including three Tibetan community leaders have been detained," she added.
