Two Tibetans die at labour re-education camp

Tibet Information Network News Update

London, 10 July (TIN) -Two Tibetans have died after being forced to
carry
out hard labour at Xinhua Re-education Through Labour Centre (Chinese:
Xinhua Laojiaosuo) in Mianyang municipality (Chinese: shi), northern
Sichuan. One of the deaths is likely to have been of Tsering Wangdrag, a

Tibetan farmer whose death last summer following maltreatment was
reported
by TIN in February (see
http://SportToday.org/). The identity of
the
second Tibetan who died is unknown. A reliable report received by TIN
said
that the two Tibetans collapsed while being forced to work in hot
weather in
summer last year. They were not given water or medical treatment and
died
shortly afterwards.

Tsering Wangdrag, who was in his thirties, was being held at the labour
camp
following his participation in protests against the arrest of a
respected
Buddhist teacher, Sonam Phuntsog, in October 1999. Eleven more Tibetans
associated with these demonstrations in Kardze (Chinese: Ganzi) county
town
in Kardze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan are currently being
held
at Mianyang, according to reliable reports. These Tibetan prisoners
include
Pema Phuntsog, Wangdu, Lobsang Jampa (known as Loka) and Phuntsog, who
are
all serving three years in Xinhua Re-education Through Labour facility,
which is about 220 km northeast of Chengdu, the provincial capital. TIN
has
been unable to confirm the identities of the remainder of the 11
reportedly
held at Mianyang following the Kardze protests.

A report received by TIN indicates that Tibetans appear to be more at
risk
than Chinese at the Xinhua facility due to their lack of acclimatization
to
the heat and humidity of Sichuan summers, combined with hard labour and
poor
conditions. Prisoners at Mianyang are chiefly involved in construction
work;
many labour re-education facilities and prisons in the Sichuan region
are
involved in producing the materials needed for infrastructure
development,
which is one of the main economic priorities of the authorities. This
linkage between prison labour and local markets helps to support the
development of the local economy of the region. Prisoners at Ngaba
prison in
Ngaba (Chinese: Aba) Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, also in
Sichuan, produce construction materials while in Dartsedo (Ch: Kangding)
in
Kardze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture there is a prison that utilises
forced
labour to manufacture cement.

One of the prisoners who died last summer at Mianyang, Tsering Wangdrag,

reportedly collapsed while he was working and died two hours later.
Tsering
Wangdrag, who is survived by his wife and two young children, was
serving a
sentence of three years. Reports received by TIN indicate that he was
beaten
unconscious at least once during his initial period of detention in the
Kardze County Public Security Bureau Detention Centre, and he continued
to
suffer from beatings at Mianyang. No details are available about the
identity of the second Tibetan who died last summer at the Mianyang
facility.

A laojiao (meaning education through labour) centre such as Xinhua
houses
detainees who have received administrative sentences, usually up to a
maximum of three years, handed down by the Bureau of Re-education
Through
Labour without a trial. Tibetans and Chinese who serve terms in
re-education
through labour camps may have committed offences such as theft, ***
*** or petty crimes, but they can also be sentenced to terms for
"disrupting public order", "anti-Party" and "anti-state" activities. The

Tibetans at Mianyang who participated in the demonstrations at Kardze,
which
involved hundreds of Tibetans, following the arrest of senior religious
leader Sonam Phuntsog are likely to be included in one of the latter
categories (for information on the Kardze demonstrations refer to
http://SportToday.org/). Conditions are
harsh
in these detention facilities; prisoners who do not meet production
quotas
or who are accused of attempting to avoid work can be punished by
beatings
or solitary confinement.

Two Tibetans die at labour re-education camp

According to CCP and friends, this is a step forward
because such deaths help advance PRC toward maturity.  
A Bravo for them! Sad for the other poor Chaps!
Still within the quota of dead American Indians, too
which means that there is still more killing to do
for the prosperity of China.
