The criminalization of Tibetan self-immolations: an ICT Special Report
Tibetan who survived self-immolation sent home with legs amputated; Tibetans accused of ‘murder’ of self-immolator sentenced
- A Tibetan teenager, Sungdue Kyab, who survived self-immolation near Bora monastery in Sangchu in 2012, has been returned home two years later with both his legs amputated.
- A Tibetan woman has been sentenced to three years in prison after she sought to help a Tibetan who set fire to himself, attempting to lift his charred body, according to one of her relatives. Two other Tibetans were sentenced to two years in connection with the same self-immolation as part of an intensified wave of repression in Tibet in which those allegedly “associated” with self-immolators, including friends, families and even entire communities, are charged with criminal offences, tortured and imprisoned.
