Leading Tibetan businessman fights for life in prison as siblings seek to secure release

A leading Tibetan businessman serving a sentence of life imprisonment in Tibet was repeatedly tortured whilst in custody in Tibet due to charges that were reportedly fabricated against him and his brother by a top official in the Chinese Communist Party.

Dorje Tashi, 50, one of Tibet’s richest businessmen who had won multiple awards from the Chinese Communist Party, has provided the most detailed account of torture and interrogation known to have emerged from a Tibetan prisoner who is still incarcerated. As a member of Tibet’s wealthy super elite, Dorje Tashi’s case is a Tibetan ‘Red Roulette’ - similar to those of more well-known wealthy Chinese Party members such as businessman Desmond Shum who received death threats after revealing networks of wealth, power, corruption and vengeance in today’s China.
