Petitioning UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, UN Navanethem Pillay

Navanethem Pillay Publicly Voice for Free Panchen Lama Campaign


She has been the voice for Human Rights, saying the High Commissioner as "the voice of the victim everywhere" and strongly called for Mr Liu to be released "as soon as possible" to the Chinese govt's shameful act of arresting a Nobel Peace Prize laureate for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China. 

We request her to assist the Tibetans in their search for the 11th Panchen Lama, Gendhun Choekyi Nyima. We are gravely concerned about his health and safety. We believe he is a victim of the People's Republic of China's blatant use of force to stifle Tibetan's religious freedom and to serve its own political ends.

We respectfully request the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to support this petition and put pressure on the government of the People's Republic of China to release the Panchen Lama without conditions.

We endorse the following demands:

1. Immediate and unconditional release of the Panchen Lama and his parents.

2. Provide the Panchen Lama with real freedom to pursue his studies and undertake his role as the second      highest religious leader of Tibet.

3. Allow independent observers access to the Panchen Lama to confirm his well-being.

4. Ensure religious freedom and respect for fundamental rights of the Tibetans as enshrined in the          Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

 

Letter to
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, UN Navanethem Pillay
Dear Navanethem Pillay,

You have been the voice for Human Rights, saying the High Commissioner as "the voice of the victim everywhere" and strongly called for Mr Liu to be released "as soon as possible" to the Chinese govt's shameful act of arresting a Nobel Peace Prize laureate for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China.

Today, We are writing to you in the hope that you will assist the Tibetans in their search for the 11th Panchen Lama, Gendhun Choekyi Nyima, youngest political prisoner in the world. We are gravely concerned about his health and safety. We believe he is a victim of the People's Republic of China's blatant use of force to stifle Tibetan's religious freedom and to serve its own political ends.

We respectfully request the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to support this petition and put pressure on the government of the People's Republic of China to release the Panchen Lama without conditions.

We endorse the following demands:

1. Immediate and unconditional release of the Panchen Lama and his parents.

2. Provide the Panchen Lama with real freedom to pursue his studies and undertake his role as the second highest religious leader of Tibet.

3. Allow independent observers access to the Panchen Lama to confirm his well-being.

4. Ensure religious freedom and respect for fundamental rights of the Tibetans as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
