Jigme Gyatso, imprisoned for the fourth time last year, is not receiving necessary medical treatment and lawyers are prevented by authorities from intervening in his case.
Two Chinese lawyers have been prevented from representing a respected Tibetan scholar monk known as Labrang Jigme, who was imprisoned for the fourth time on August 20 last year. Friends of Jigme Guri (also known as Jigme Gyatso) are concerned about his health in custody as he is believed to be ill and not receiving medical treatment.
Jigme Guri, a monk at Labrang monastery in Amdo, is known for recording a video testimony about his brutal treatment in custody and his views about Chinese policy, which was circulated on Youtube with English subtitles. Tibetan writer Woeser writes: “Because of this , Tibetan people everywhere recognized him as a hero of their people, naming him ‘Labrang Jigme’.”
