Dharamshala, India -- The five monks are dressed in layman`s clothes temporarily, also temporary are their weather beaten faces, and exhausted stares. These five men arrived from Tibet via the Himalayas and Nepal three days ago; for the second time, they reveal to international media the human rights offenses that occur daily inside Tibet. Last year when they found themselves in front of cameras they were afraid of the ramifications of telling the truth, now they are guests of Tibetans in exile including the Central Executive Committee of Dhomay (CED) and safely in India there is no reason for them to fear physical harm.
A press conference took place in the Tibetan Government in Exile complex in Dharamshala, India yesterday. Mr. Dhundop, vice president of CED said "we didn`t hear about this news on the radio or on the TV when these five monks came here then we knew their story. We are very happy to see these heroes face to face, and we heartily appreciate their bravery and sacrifice."
