Lhasa [Tibet]: The Tibet Rights Collective reported that China peddles the agenda of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) overseas, much of the effort in that direction is undertaken by the Council for Promotion of Peaceful National Reunification (CCPPR), a non-profit organisation influencing the lives of refugee Tibetans living in Nepal.
Since September 2022, the CCPPR has been affecting the lives of Tibetan refugees in Nepal in the form of the China Council for the Promotion of Peaceful National Reunification, the report stated and also added that it is expanding under a China-controlled front in Nepal to detect and silence dissident voices within overseas Chinese communities.
The Tibet Rights Collective reported the influence of the CCPPR on the Nepal government will affect the rights of Tibetan refugees in Nepal.
China sees Nepal as a potential partner in its Belt and Road Initiative. The report said that the Nepalese government had cited promises of millions of dollars of Chinese investment to restrict Tibetan activities in the country, adding that Nepal is hosting over 15,000 Tibetan refugees on humanitarian grounds but has stopped issuing them identity cards since 1995.
The report claimed that the Nepal government has also denied the Tibetan refugee school and college admissions and opening of bank accounts while also restraining them from opening businesses.
It states that Nature Desai, a Twitter user, posted a time-lapse to show how China built a road to ‘Parchekya Bhanjyang’ (5447m), a saddle separating Nepal and Tibet, the report stated further.
Chinese road incursions inside Nepal!
In 2020, 🇨🇳 started building a pucca road to 'Parchekya Bhanjyang' (5447m), a saddle separating 🇳🇵 and Tibet. Then, suddenly in July- August two roads started entering 🇳🇵(1.5 km and 2.5 km respectively).
No response from 🇳🇵
