Film-maker Dhondup Wangchen sentenced to six years PDF Print E-mail
[26 January 2010] Film-maker Dhondup Wangchen had been given a six year prison sentence for inciting separatism by making his documentary film Leaving Fear Behind. This film documents Dhondup's visit to Tibet in early 2008 where he interviewed Tibetans, asking them for their thoughts and views on the upcoming Olympic Games, the Dalai Lama and future developments. He was arrested shortly after completing these interviews and had been held for over 18 months in detention. He had no independent legal representation of his choice at his trial. The dire lack of due legal process and the extreme sentence meted out for what were tenuous charges again shows the complete disregard the Chinese government has for meaningful legal reform and civil rights.
