Communists Funding Dalai Lama

For the first time, China's ruling Communist party has openly said some of its officials were funding the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama by donating money to him, undermining the fight against separatist forces. 

The Global Times, a tabloid publication attached the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC), quoted a 2016 report issued by Tibet's discipline watchdog, linking "15 party officials to alleged illegal overseas separatist organisations in 2014 who provided intelligence to the Dalai Lama clique and funded secessionist activities." 

It, however, did not reveal the names or the designations of the officials. 

This is the first time official media here has come out with a disclosure of Chinese officials' links with the Dalai Lama after he fled from China to India in 1959.
