China Conducts Checks on Burmese Monasteries at the Border


5th October 2007

DVB reported that Chinese officials on Thursday conducted checks on the Burmese monasteries at the Chinese-Burmese Border for visiting monks from Burma.

Eyewitnesses said that officials visited monasteries in a border town to investigate if there were any new monks from Burma.

According to DVB, since late last month, the officials notified the monasteries not to accept any burmese monks from across the border.

Insiders also said that border officials have been requested by the junta to detain and repatriate any monks who have come to the border to escape the junta.
