EDM | Actions Of Chinese Troops In Ngaba, Tibet

Posted on: 11th July 2011

Andrew George MP has signed  EDM number 2009 in 2010-11, proposed by Fabian Hamilton on 29/06/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House condemns the use of violence to quash a peaceful demonstration by monks and lay people in Ngaba, Tibet that has resulted in the deaths of two elderly local residents; further condemns the cordoning off of the local Kirti monastery, the political re-education of its monks and the disappearance of 300 monks; also voices grave concern about the continued high level of troops in the area, effectively putting the town under martial law; and calls on the Prime Minister to make a public statement about this grave situation to reinforce the requests made by the EU China delegation for further information on the fate and whereabouts of the disappeared monks and for an independent representative to visit Ngaba to validate the current situation.
