Sweden has charged a Tibetan with spying on fellow exiles for the Chinese government, according to media reports.

Tibet Sun learned that the suspect is 49-year-old Dorjee Gyantsan.

State prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist said in a statement that Gyantsan was supplying the Chinese government with information about housing, family situations, political activities, and meetings of Tibetans living in Sweden.

Gyantsan then passed this information on to a Chinese security agent.

Ljungqvist also said that Gyantsan had been in touch with Chinese officials in Poland and Finland.

On one occasion he had been paid 50,000 krona (approx 6,000 USD).

Sweden’s security service SAPO arrested Gyanstan on 26 February.

Last year, Sweden’s security service also arrested a man for spying on Tibetans in the country.

There are about 140 Tibetans living in Sweden.
