西藏电影制作人当知项欠(Dhondup Wangchen)的妻子和表弟对他的健康状况以及在狱中所受的待遇表示严重关切,并呼吁国际社会伸出援手。根据最新的消息,当知项欠患有乙型肝炎却由于受监禁而没有得到治疗。当知项欠的家庭在北京委托的律师,在政府压力之下,被迫放弃了这个案件。

“在得知最近的消息之前,我有一年多的时间没有当知项欠的任何音讯”,当知项欠的妻子,居住在印度北部达兰萨拉的流亡藏人拉姆措(LhamoTso)说。“我知道他是一个健康活跃的人,我无法想象他在中国的监狱中遭受的酷刑。得知他身患乙型肝炎却得不到治疗让我担心他的生命安全,我不敢把他的情况告诉我们的(四个)孩子”,拉姆措接着说。

现年35岁的当知项欠自2008年3月26日起被拘禁,原因是由于他就普通西藏人对北京奥运会、达赖喇嘛以及中国政府政策的看法进行了采访拍摄。这些采访被制作成纪录片《不再恐惧》,并在2008年北京奥运会开幕前两天,在一些媒体记者中间举行了首映。

“当知项欠是无辜的,根本不应该遭受牢狱之灾”,居住在瑞士苏黎世的嘉荣慈诚(Gyaljong Tsetrin)说,他是当知项欠的表弟。“记录普通人的观点是一项基本人权,而中国的法律也保障言论自由。但是中国政府无视法治,甚至禁止独立律师接手这个案件。因此,我呼吁全世界的人权组织和支持者敦促他们在北京的政府代表向中国政府施加压力,无条件释放当知项欠。”

到目前为止,《不再恐惧》已经在全世界30多个国家上映并被翻译成多种语言,包括法文、西班牙文、德文、波兰文、匈牙利文、日文以及中文。迄今,对当知项欠案件表示关切国际组织包括人权观察、记者无国界和国际大赦。

Family Fear for Detained Tibetan Filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen; Beijing Lawyer Barred from Case

London, 20th July 2009. The wife and cousin of detained Tibetan filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen have expressed serious concern for his health and treatment in prison and called on the international community for help. According to recent information, Wangchen suffers from Hepatitis B and receives no medical treatment in detention. Wangchens family appointed lawyer in Beijing, under government pressure, has been forced to drop the case.

"Before hearing this latest news, I hadnt had any news about Dhondup Wangchen for over a year", said Lhamo Tso, Wangchens wife living in exile in Dharamsala, north India. "Ive always known him to be a healthy and active person, I cannot imagine what terrible torture he has gone through in Chinese custody. Knowing that he is receiving no treatment for Hepatitis B makes me fear for his life, I dare not tell our four children here about his condition", Lhamo Tso continued.

Wangchen, 35, has been in detention since March 26, 2008, for filming interviews with ordinary Tibetans on their views on the Olympic Games, the Dalai Lama and Chinese government policies in Tibet. The interviews were made into a documentary film Leaving Fear Behind and first shown to journalists in Beijing two days before the start of the Olympics in August 2008.

"Dhondup Wangchen has committed no crime and should not be in prison at all", said Gyaljong Tsetrin, Wangchens cousin based in Zurich, Switzerland." Documenting the views of ordinary people is a basic human right and freedom of expression is guaranteed in Chinese law. The Chinese government has shown no regard for rule of law and has even barred an independent lawyer from taking up this case. Therefore I call upon human rights organisations and supporters all over the world to urge their government representatives in Beijing to pressure the Chinese government to unconditionally release Dhondup Wangchen."

To date, Leaving Fear Behind has been shown in over 30 countries worldwide and further translated into many foreign languages including French, Spanish, German, Polish, Hungarian, Japanese and Chinese. International organisations who have so far expressed concern about Wangchen include Human Rights Watch, Reporters Without Borders and Amnesty International.
