People's Republic of China: Call for accountability for Tibetan deaths in custody in Drapchi Prison
Nine prisoners, mainly Buddhist monks and nuns, incarcerated in Tibet's notorious Drapchi Prison, died following protests that took place at the prison on 1 and 4 May 1998. They are reported to have died as a result of severe beatings and other forms of torture and ill-treatment meted out by prison officers, apparently as punishment for their participation in the protests. Despite repeated calls for accountability from Amnesty International and other organizations, the Chinese authorities have so far failed to initiate a full and independent inquiry into these allegations and ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.
