Subject: lack of due process for Tibetans
Feb 22 2012 01:19 AM

This report shows Tibetans lack due process of law in the Chinese judicial system, particularly when it comes to political crimes.

Jigme Guri was arrested & detained for 4 months before he was charged with any offense. Chinese prosecutors did not have evidence against him & so had to "find" it or perhaps concoct it.

During his detention, Jigme did not have adequate access to legal counsel nor was a allowed family visits as required by Chinese law.

The complete lack of due process of law completely negates any conviction he may receive, which seems pre-decided. No one can be sure the allegations are true if the courts & police deny a criminal suspect due process of law.

This case is yet another example of the travesty of the Chinese judicial system and lack of civil rights for Tibetans charged with political crimes.
