Urgent Notice on Tibet Stability

The following post from veteran journalist Luo Changping (罗昌平), the chief editor of Caijing magazine, was deleted from Sina Weibo sometime after 2pm Hong Kong time, Febuary 7, 2012. Luo currently has more than 84,000 followers on Weibo, according to Sina’s numbers. [More on deleted posts at the WeiboScope Search, by the Journalism and Media Studies Centre].

An urgent notice sent out [from the leadership] on Tibet says that in this critical time of stability preservation (维稳关键时刻), anyone without exception who is absent without leave or shrinks from responsibility, with serious consequences [for stability], will be dismissed from his official post and then subjected to discipline, regardless of who it is or what level of cadre. http://t.cn/zO7BfSt

Luo’s post is in fact a summary of a news article from Tibet Daily, the region’s official Party newspaper. The shortened link at the end of Luo’s post takes readers to the Tibet Daily notice, which was still available as of 3:19pm February 8, 2012.

Luo’s original post follows:

西藏紧急通知,对维稳关键时刻擅离职守、临阵退缩,造成严重后果的,无论什么人,无论哪一级干部,一律先就地免职,再纪律处分http://t.cn/zO7BfSt
