Tibetan monks stage sit-in protest in front of Chinese court

According to confirmed information received by
the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy
(TCHRD), around six Tibetan monks staged a
peaceful sit-in protest on 2 April 2009 in front
of the Xining City High People's Court, Qinghai.

The monks staged the sit-in around 8 a.m. in the
morning holding a large banner appealing to the
court to conduct fair judicial proceedings in
accordance with the law. The monks were
reportedly led away by the local Public Security
Bureau (PSB) officers and their current
whereabouts are unknown. The TCHRD will continue
to investigate into the incident and details will
be updated as additional information surfaces.
