Tashi Wangchuk, an innocent Tibetan shopkeeper and language advocate, was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment by Chinese authorities on false charges of ‘inciting separatism’.

 

HIS CRIME? Publicly seeking his right to Tibetan language education. 

Tashi has already spent two and a half years in Chinese detention despite the fact that he has committed no crime under both international law and that of the Chinese constitution. He is now not due to be released until January 2021 after Chinese courts rejected his sentence appeal on 13 August 2018.

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet urged Hong Hong authorities on Tuesday to exercise restraint and investigate evidence of its forces firing tear gas at protesters in ways banned by international law.

“Officials can be seen firing tear gas canisters into crowded, enclosed areas and directly at individual protesters on multiple occasions, creating a considerable risk of death or serious injury,” Bachelet said in a statement.
