Dharamshala: Among those hundreds of Tibetans who were tortured and arbitrarily sentenced to jail for voicing strong indignation against 50 years of China's repression in Tibet last year, a people's court in Lhasa last year had handed down rigorous prison sentence of 14 to 15 years on two Tibetan social activists, according to information received by the Central Tibetan Administration.

Migmar Dhondup, aged 36, and Tenchoe alias Tenzin Choedak, aged 23, were arrested by the Public Security Bureau at separate locations in connection with the peaceful protests in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, in March last year.

Migmar Dhondup was sentenced to 14 years in jail on charges of espionage on 27 October.
