China: Fourteen monks arrested in Tibet

, N° d'index: ASA 17/008/1995

Fourteen monks from the Sang-Ngag Kha Monastery in Tibet are reported to have been arrested during three protests against "political interference" in their monastery. The protests took place on 2 and 7 December 1994, shortly after a visit to Tibet at the end of November 1994 by the UN Special Rapporteur on Religious Intolerance. Eight of the monks are believed to be detained in Lhasa; the other six are reportedly detained in a prison in Taktse county, Tibet. AI is calling for them to be released unless they are promptly charged with a recognizably criminal offence in accordance with international standards and given a fair and open trial.
