URGENT: A-NYA SENGDRA’S APPEAL TO BE HEARD IMMINENTLY
A-Nya Sengdra, a Tibetan nomad and environmental activist from eastern Tibet, was sentenced in December 2019 to seven years in prison on false charges.
Detained on 4 September 2018, A-Nya was beaten by Chinese security officers and held for over 14 months without trial.
A-Nya was charged with “gathering people to disturb public order”, when he was simply resisting China’s failed Tibet policies and pressing for environmental protections and end to local authority corruption.
His arrest and detention appear to be a response to his peaceful activism as an environmentalist, community leader and anti-corruption activist.
A-Nya Sengdra must be immediately released.
TAKE ACTION – Call on the Chinese Minister of Justice and the Provincial Government of Qinghai to immediately free him.
