The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) yesterday released a statement expressing their concern for Jigme Gyatso (aka Golog Jigme) who is feared detained. Jigme Gyatso was last heard of on September 20, 2012.

“We are concerned about the whereabouts of Jigme Gyatso, who has been harassed and detained in the past for making a film,” said Bob Dietz, CPJ Asia program coordinator. “All too often, Tibetan journalists are detained without due process, and Gyatso’s disappearance is a reminder that even if they are freed, the fear of re-arrest is constant.”
