Several months after ordering the destruction of Buddhist statues in the Kardze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan province and forcing Tibetan monks to watch, Chinese authorities are now forcing those monks to sign affidavits claiming responsibility for the demolition. It remains unclear what punishments the monks face if they refuse to falsely take the blame, but monks who were detained in early 2022 for revealing the destruction to the outside world face harassment and scrutiny even after their release, local sources said.
