Olympic Watch: human rights in China and the Beijing 2008 Olympics OLYMPIC WATCHOLYMPIC WATCH

Urgent Action: Tenzin Delek Rinpoche

Candlelight for Tenzin Delek Rinpoche - Tuesday March 9, 2004

0 Olympic Watch has joined the international campaign to save the Tibetan political prisoner, Tenzin Delek Rinpoche, from execution.

Tenzin Delek Rinpoche, a respected Buddhist leader, was sentenced to death in an unfair trial in December 2002 and may be executed as early as April 2004. Tenzin Delek Rinpoche was most likely targeted by the PRC authorities for his peaceful community and religious work. He was not allowed to choose his legal counsel and the trial was closed for the public.

Olympic Watch is calling on its supporters to participate in this campaign by writing to the government of the People's Republic of China, asking for:
  • An immediate release of Tenzin Delek Rinpoche and others detained in relation with this case
  • Investigating the reports of torture, ill-treatment and lack of fair trial standards in this case and other cases in the Sichuan Province and in Tibet
  • Respecting international human rights law standards
