Concern for Jigme Guri

UPDATE: Jigme Guri has been moved from prison to a hospital but details of his current health are unclear
 
In September 2014 Jigme Gyatso, a high-profile Tibetan monk and political prisoner (popularly known as Jigme Guri), was sentenced to 5 years in prison for “splittist activities.” He had been “disappeared” for 2 years prior to his sentence without access to his family or legal defence.
 
In 2008 Jigme Gyatso exposed Chinese torture methods to the world via a media interview in which he described his treatment after he was detained during the 2008 Uprising. Jigme Gyatso described how during his detention, he was kept continuously handcuffed in one position for many days and nights. During interrogation sessions he was suspended from the ceiling while his interrogators beat him and told him he must confess. 

TAKE ACTION: Send a Message to China to immediately release Jigme Guri

 
Dear Party Secretary
I am writing to express my deep concern about the sentencing of Jigme Guri [Ch: 久美果日] to five years in prison for merely exercising his right to free expression.
 
As Party Secretary of Gansu Province, you are ultimately responsible for the well-being of individuals arrested under your jurisdiction. I therefore call on you to immediately release Jigme Guri who has been charged with “actions to split the nation”.  
 
I demand that you immediately and unconditionally release Jigme Guri, who has committed no crime but has exercised his right to free expression by speaking out against the torture and oppression experienced by himself and by the Tibetan people. 
 
我写这封信的目的在表达对久美果日被监禁的严重关切,久美果日2011年8月20日在甘肃省合作市旅馆中遭到公安人员强行侵入房间后失踪至今。
做为甘肃省党书记,你最终必须为在你管辖区内的任何人之福祉负起责任。我要求你立即公布久美果日的行踪,以及他被逮捕的原因。
我强烈要求你立即无条件释放久美果日,他并无任何犯罪行为,仅仅是行使他应有的言论自由,为西藏人民被酷刑虐待而发声
