Dolma Kyab

Photograph of Dolma Kyab (pen-name Lobsang Kelsang Gyatso) in Arig, his home village in the Tibetan province of Amdo, after being released from prison. Kyab, a Tibetan writer and teacher who wrote a manuscript titled Sao dong de Ximalayashan (Restless Himalayas), was detained on 5 March 2005 and tried in secret on 30 November 2005 on accusations of “endangering state security” under Chinese law. Despite public protests, support from human rights organisations including PEN International and an appeal from his family, Kyab’s ten-and-a-half year sentence was maintained. He was eventually released from Chushur Prison in Lhasa on 8 October 2015.
