China jails Tibetan man
Beijing: A court in China`s Qinghai province sentenced a Tibetan man to four years in prison for inciting secession.
Gyadehor, a Tibetan herdsman aged 60, was also deprived of his political rights for two years, reported Xinhua citing the verdict from the Intermediate People`s Court of the Huangnan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.
Gyadehor spread opinions related to "Tibet independence" when he brought cash and other goods to console families of self-immolators in November 2012, the court found.
His acts constituted the crime of inciting a split of the state, the court said.
The court arranged a Tibetan interpreter for the defendant during the open trial.
More than 100 people, including relatives and friends of the defendant, were present when the verdict was delivered.
