We remain concerned at the handling of the case of 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 2018 and the FCO issued a tweet following his sentencing. We most recently raised his case during China’s Universal Periodic Review in November 2018.
