Dharamshala, India – Several Tibetans were arbitrarily arrested in Driru County in "Kham Province" in eastern Tibet ahead of the so-called 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party, at least one of them on charges of allegedly having contacts outside Tibet, leading to further repression and tightening of control.
Dharamshala, India — "Tibetan people were subjected to imprisonment, beating, and torture beyond the limits of cruelty. Even today the situation in Tibet remains extremely heart-rending. Therefore, the true situation remains that it was not a "peaceful liberation" but a violent armed invasion and occupation which was carried out by the communist Chinese government in Tibet," said Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile.
