Tashi Wangchuk, an innocent Tibetan shopkeeper and language advocate, has been sentenced to five years’ imprisonment by Chinese authorities on politically motivated 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.
