Where is the Panchen Lama?

In 1995 a young Tibetan boy called Gedhun Choekyi Nyima disappeared after he’d been recognised as the 11th Panchen Lama of Tibet; he was just six years old and he became the world’s youngest political prisoner held captive by the Chinese government.

He is now 30 years old, and has been missing for almost 25 years.

Since his disappearance in 1995, the Chinese government has repeatedly dismissed requests for full disclosure about the Panchen Lama’s location and well-being and rejected appeals for his release.

Take Action: Urge G20 Leaders to push China for information about Gedhun Choekyi Nyima and call for his immediate release.
