Rights Group Expresses Concern for Ronggye A'drak's fate

The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy is highly concerned at the well being of Ronggye A'drak who has been arbitrariy detained since August 1, 2007 for staging a public protest during the official function organised by the Lithang County Government for the 80th Founding Anniversary of PLA and annual Lithang horse race. In an interview with VOA, Jampel Monlam, TCHRD spokesperson, said TCHRD considers Ronggye A'drak's call a genuine expression of local Tibetans' concern and despair that continue to exist in Tibet as a result of China's repressive policies. The rights group urges PRC to immediately address the genuine concerns of local Tibetan people rather than tightening the noose around the Tibetan people's fundamental human rights.
