China’s isolation of Tibet ‘increasingly worrying’ says press freedom group
DHARAMSHALA, August 27: The global press freedom group, Reporters Without Borders, has called China’s complete isolation of Tibet from international media and outside reporters an “increasingly worrying” trend.
In a release last week, RSF said China continues to deny independent reporters permission to enter Tibet following large-scale anti-China protests this year led by the ongoing wave of self-immolations.
“Beijing’s isolation of Tibet is increasingly worrying,” RSF said. “In March this year, the head of the Tibet Communist Party, Chen Quanguo, ordered the local authorities to tighten their control over all means of communication, in particular mobile phones and the Internet, in order to ‘maintain the public’s interests and national security’.”
