Tibetan monk Karmapa Urgyen Trinley faces money-laundering case in India - ANI News

Shimla/ Dharamsala, July 10 (ANI): A court dismissed a ruling to drop charges against Karmapa Urgyen Trinley, a top Tibetan monk who is seen as a potential successor to the Dalai Lama, and is to be prosecuted for money-laundering charges, said a government lawyer. The Himachal Pradesh high court directed authorities to open criminal proceedings against Trinley over the recovery of around $1.4 million in foreign currency during a raid on his Buddhist monastery in Dharamsala four years ago. The police had filed charges against 10 people including the Karmapa, but a district court had dismissed the case in 2012 in a verdict. Advocate general of Himachal Pradesh, Shrawan Dogra, said the district court's decision was overturned. His office denies wrongdoing and says the money comes from the thousands of often wealthy followers who have visited the Karmapa every year since he arrived in India. A member of Tibetan parliament-in-exile, Karma Chophel, said they might appeal against the verdict in the Supreme Court.
