*The Kashag (Cabinet) Welcomes Chinese Lawyers in China for Offering
Legal Service to Tibetans*

We are heartened and inspired to learn that a group of Chinese lawyers
based in Mainland China have offered their legal assistance to Tibetan
arbitrarily arrested and imprisoned by Chinese authorities following the
peaceful protests starting March 10, 2008 in Lhasa and other Tibetan areas.

We are equally encouraged to note that the lawyers, while expressing
their serious concern for the well being of the arrested Tibetans, have
called upon the concerned Chinese authorities to "obey the constitution,
following the legal procedures in dealing with the arrested
Tibetans..... no torture throughout interrogation and respect the
independence of legal system".

The Kashag would like to thank all those Chinese lawyers who have taken
upon themselves to protect the legal rights of the Tibetans as well as
Chinese people and have come forward to save the arrested Tibetans from
the onslaught of a regime bent on curbing the fundamental rights of its
own people to have a fair and just legal representation.
