A Chinese court has sentenced three Tibetans to prison for their roles in a protest in June. The sentence, two-year prison terms for each of the three men, was handed down on Aug.4 in the Chamdo prefecture of the Tibet Autonomous Region(TAR).
Sources said. ''The reason for the sentences was not made public,'' Geshe Monlam Tharchin, a Tibetan living in Dharmsala, India said, citing contacts in Tibet. ''Even their relatives had little information about their charges,'' he said.
Gyaltsang Jampa, Bhulhuk and Mutsa Tsang Tseten, were among five people arrested for protesting against the Chinese government's forced indoctrination campaign of denouncing His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Jomda County in Chamdo Prefecture in June this year.
