Statement of Tamdin Choetso
Niece of Tibetan Political Prisoner Tenzin Delek Rinpoche
Thank you for the opportunity to make this statement. My name is Tamdin Choestso and I am the niece of Tibetan Political Prisoner Tenzin Delek Rinpoche. Twelve years ago my uncle was detained. The Ganzi Intermediate People's Court alleged that his case involved "state secrets" and tried him in a closed court on November 29, 2002. The court sentenced him to death with a two-year reprieve for conspiring to cause explosions and 14 years in prison for inciting "splittism." The Sichuan High People's Court rejected his appeal and commuted the sentence to life imprisonment on January 26, 2005.
