Santiago — “On the occasion of the new anniversary of the disappearance of Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, who was recognised by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama of Tibet, we join the international call that asks to know his whereabouts and condition as well as his immediate put in liberty,” reads an appeal by the five parliamentarians from Chile.

On the occasion of the 27th anniversary of the disappearance of Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, five Chilean parliamentarians, namely Vlado Mirosevic, Luis Malla, Sebastian Videla, Alejandro Bernales, and Ana Gazmurri, have issued an appeal demanding the immediate release of the 11th Tibetan Panchen Lama on May 17, 2022.

“On the occasion of the new anniversary of the disappearance of Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, who was recognised by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama of Tibet, we join the international call that asks to know his whereabouts and condition as well as his immediate put in liberty,” the appeal reads.

“In 1995, after being recognised as the 11th Panchen Lama, Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, then only a 6 years old boy, disappeared from Naqchu, his place of origin in Tibet, along with his parents and has not been seen since. Chinese authorities who have acknowledged that they took him into custody refuse to reveal where he is, on the pretext of ensuring his privacy,” the parliamentarians said.

“Organisations of the United Nations, governments of different countries, non-governmental organisations, and the general public have insisted, until now in vain, on having news about the young man who is now 33 years old,” they added.

“We remain attentive to the elucidation of this important issue and we trust that his release will not be further delayed,” the Chilean MPs concluded.
