Background: The Dalai Lama - at Mussoorie, India, November 14, - told members of the International Legal Inquiry Committee investigating Chinese aggression in Tibet, that since 1955, 65,000 Tibetans had been killed while resisting Chinese occupation of their country.
About 10,000 young Tibetans had bene deported in Chinese attempts to suppress Tibetan opposition. In some parts of the country, Tibetans were sterilised or castrated. The Dalai Lama said a number of Tibetan refugees in India could be medically examined to provide evidence.
China, said the Dalai Lama, was trying to destroy Tibet's culture and religion, and by means of mass killings, deportation, and Chinese immigration, was seeking to make Tibetans & minority of the population.
Distinguished jurists from India, the Philippines, Ghana, Ceylon, Burma, Malaya, and Thailand heard the Dalai Lama's statement. The committee's findings - expected to be published within the next two months - are to be submitted to the United Nations. Chairmen of the committee - appointed by an international commission supported by some 30,000 jurists in more than 50 countries - is Mr. Trikamdas, of India.
