We remain concerned at the handling of the case of the Tibetan language advocate Tashi Wangchuk; his case raises serious concerns about due process and transparency of justice in China. A UK diplomat attempted to attend his trial in January and the FCO tweeted about our concerns following his sentencing. We most recently raised his case with the Chinese Government at the UK/China Human Rights Dialogue in June 2017​
