Tibetan Writer Under House Arrest in Beijing

Woeser Radio Free Asia reports from Hong Kong:

Authorities in Beijing have been holding Tibetan writer Tsering and her Chinese husband under house arrest in the capital since the beginning of the recent anti-Chinese protests in Tibetan regions of the country, her husband told Radio Free Asia (RFA).

“She has been under house arrest since March 10,” Tsering Woeser’s husband, Han Chinese author Wang Lixiong said.

“Her movements are restricted, as are mine. In the past, I was their main target. But now she has become part of the target,” he told RFA’s Mandarin service.

“Whatever movements we plan to make, we must first ask for approval. Only when it’s approved by higher-ups can we make a move under surveillance,” he said.
