Release the Kidnapped Panchen Lama of Tibet (Gedun Choekyi Nyima)
The 11th Panchen Lama of Tibet (Gedun Choekyi Nyima) was born on April 25, 1989. In May 1995 Gedun Choekyi Nyima was 6 years old when he and his parents were kidnapped from their home in Tibet by the Chinese government. Widely known as the World's Youngest Political Prisoner, he has been missing for almost 9 years.
In Tibet, Panchen Lama is a title like Vice-President or Prime Minister. Panchen means Great Scholar and Lama means Religious Teacher.
This missing boy will grow up to be a great leader if released and allowed to pursue his religious studies in freedom.
So please add your signature to this petition for the speedy release of the 11th Panchen Lama. Thank you for your support.
We the undersigned respectfully request the United Nations to support this petition and to forward it to the Government of China. We request the Government of China to confirm the whereabouts of Gedun Choekyi Nyima and demand his immediate release.
