Monk Accused Of Leaking Information To Outside World
Sources in China say a 39-year-old Tibetan Buddhist monk has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment after a secret trial.
Tibetcustom.com reports that the monk, Ngagchung, has been held incommunicado since his arrest in July of 2008. The Web site quoted the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy.
The monk was tried by the Kardze Intermediate People’s Court in Sichuan Province.
No details were available on the trial. His family members have not been allowed to see him.
He was arrested on suspicion of leaking information about Tibet outside China. He is believed to be held in a prison near Chengdu.
