  Nangpa La update: Message to climbers from the International Campaign for Tibet


"The death of 17-year old Tibetan nun Kelsang Namtso on the Nangpa Pass has been reported all over the world, thanks largely to images and footage made available by mountaineers on Cho Oyu . This has enabled governments to hold China to account for its actions, and efforts are still ongoing. However, many details surrounding the incident are still unclear, and it is very important that we gather as much information as possible from those of you who were in the area at the time."

Bear witness and save another life

"The shooting that resulted in Kelsang Namtso’s death has been described by the Chinese government as an act of self-defense. In the absence of any independent inquiry into the death, and in order to pre-empt any further Chinese or other denials of the death, we are putting together as detailed a dossier as possible about the incident, based on the accounts of eyewitnesses."

"We are urgently seeking to hear from climbers who witnessed the incident to answer a questionnaire we have put together in order to confirm details of the death, and the aftermath of the shooting."

"Our Tibetan researchers in India and Kathmandu are also interviewing the Tibetans in the group who survived and who are now in exile. We hope that full documentation of this case will contribute towards efforts to prevent such an incident occurring again."

"We would not make answers to questions publicly available without permission and climbers can be assured of our discretion if they wish to remain anonymous.
