His Serenity the Panchen Lama, who became the world’s youngest political prisoner when his was recognized by the Dalai Lama and subsequently “disappeared” by the Chinese government who then put a puppet figure they chose in his place, turned 22 yesterday. In spite of worldwide protest, he has been neither seen nor heard since his abduction more than 5800 days ago.
A vigil was held yesterday evening in Vancouver outside the Chinese Consulate.
