organizations and governments to help save and ensure due process of
law and justice, in the case of Lobsang Gyaltsen and Loyak, who may or
may not be able to appeal to higher competent courts. And appeal also
in the case of Tenzin Phuntsok and Khantsug, both of whom have also
received death sentences with a two-year reprieve,” the press release
issued by the Tibetan Parliament noted.The Tibetan Parliament said “the verdict has been handed down without due process of law by the court”.The
sentences announced by the Lhasa Municipal Intermediate People’s Court
for execution of Lobsang Gyaltsen and Loyak remains to be reviewed by
China’s Supreme People’s Court, the press release added.
