Six Tibétains de la province chinoise du Qinghaï ont été arrêtés par les autorités pour avoir tenté de bloquer la destruction d’habitations construites sans permis sur la rive pittoresque du lac. Les 6 individus, mis en garde à vue la semaine dernière s’étaient opposés à la destruction d’abris temporaires situés dans le comté de Chabcha (Gonghe en chinois), préfecture indépendante tibétaine de Tsolho (Hainan en chinois). Une source voulant garder l’anonymat indique : « Les Tibétains vivant sur les rives du Lac Qinghaï avaient construit des habitations en tôle pour y vivre. Mais les autorités ont lancé une campagne pour la destruction des bâtisses, sur les arguments qu’il s’agissait de constructions illégales qui gâchent la beauté de la zone. » La source précise que toutes les habitations des communes de Trilnak, Tanak, Chang Shey et Rigmon sont concernées. Elle ajoute également que dans un premier temps quatre Tibétains avaient été arrêtés lors des démolitions de maisons sur le lieu-dit  Gonpo Dong sur la commune de Tanak. « Lubun Gyal, ses fils Tsewang Gyal et Richen Dorje, et son beau-fils Yeshe Dorje ont tous été emmenés [ par la police ], ils sont maintenant dans le centre de détention de Chabcha. » Le lendemain matin  le chef du village de Gyablung, Tashi Gyal, et un jeune homme appelé Yangchuk Gyal ont été convoqués au centre de détention où il sont détenus.

who were taken into custody last week, had objected to the destruction by officials of temporary dwellings set up in Chabcha (in Chinese, Gonghe) county in the Tsolho (Hainan) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, a local source told RFA’s Tibetan Service. “The Tibetans living along the shore of Qinghai Lake have built houses using iron sheets in which to live,” RFA’s source said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “But the authorities have launched a campaign to demolish those structures, saying they were illegally constructed and spoil the scenic beauty of the area,” the source said. Tibetan homes built in the townships of Trilnak, Tanak, Chang Shey and Rigmon were all affected by the order, he said. Four Tibetans were detained on May 5 when authorities began to demolish houses built at a place called Gonpo Dong in Tanak, the source said. “Lubum Gyal, his sons Tsewang Gyal and Rinchen Dorje, and his son-in-law Yeshe Dorje were all taken away and are now being held in the Chabcha county detention center.” Early next morning, Gyablung village chief Tashi Gyal and a young man named Yangchuk Gyal were summoned to the detention center and were also detained, he said. Further building banned On May 7, authorities told local Tibetans they are now forbidden to build houses along the lake or in nomadic areas nearby, the source said, adding however that “many houses owned by Tibetans who have bribed officials are being spared.” “This campaign has deprived many Tibetans of shelter and is causing them great hardship,” he said. News of the demolitions followed reports of the destruction last week of “illegal” Tibetan homes in Mangra (Guinan), another Tsolho county. Tibetans living in China frequently complain of political, economic, and religious discrimination as well as human rights abuses. A total of 139 Tibetans have self-immolated in China since 2009 to protest Beijing’s rule in Tibetan-populated areas and to call for the return of exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.
