Oops :o looks like someone's dirty laundry is out in the open! And what is worst is the CTA is trying to discredit the author, and by doing so they just made it more obvious that Sangay is GUILTY as charge! How silly. They should have instead refuted Mila Rangzen's information if it was really fake news.  No wonder Tibetans in exile are heading downhill, for 60 years, no leadership has ever made such a horrible blunder. What a shame for the Tibetans, what a disappointment to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I feel sorry for him, but what to do, there is karma CTA.

President Sangay and the sexual assault on Ms Leslie Butterfield



Just as you, the reader, I am also very concerned about the direction that LS is taking the Tibetan community towards.  Just as Trump he is catering to his base of fanatic Khampa sanjor ex-monk supporters leading to disharmony and divisiveness. Let me start in 2011 during the Kalachakra in Washington DC. – During the Kalachakra from July 6-16th, LS also visited as is normal for him to bask in the glory of His Holiness.  An intern, Leslie Butterfield, at the ICT was assigned to him to assist him in his meetings and moving around DC.  Ms. Butterfield was in her early 20s then and a very attractive young woman who supported His Holiness and the Tibetan cause with her whole heart and being.  She is known to have been a very active participant in numerous activities to further the cause of Tibet and spread the work of compassion of His Holiness.

It was the night of July 11th that LS physically assaulted her in his hotel room.  The next day she reported this to Mary Beth Markey, the then President of ICT.  There were others in the office who were also made aware of the incident of the previous night. Ms. Butterfield was convinced by Marybeth and others in the ICT not to file charges against LS using the name of HH as an emotional blackmail.  That she would be sullying the name of His Holiness if she was to file a complaint.  She was pressured into not filing a complaint which makes people at ICT complicit in a cover-up.  With so many women coming out with sexual abuse charges it may be time for Ms. Butterfield to come out too.

She is now married with a child.  Maura Mohinyan comes to mind as someone capable of convincing her to come forward.  Maura as I know her has in-depth knowledge of LS dealings.

During his last visit to NY and DC along with Kaydor, he had a meeting with the Tibet Fund regarding the $1.5 mil loan.  He is pressurizing TF to write off the loan before the parliament session begins in March so as to prove his point that it was a grant and not a loan even though existing documents show the money as a loan which I have written in depth.  During the meeting, he emotionally blackmailed the TF saying that he was going to ask HH for the money so that it is paid back to the TF just to prove that it was not a loan even though paying it back means it was a loan.  He explicitly asked the TF “if they were comfortable taking money from HH”.  There are ongoing talks between TF and OoT, DC on his behalf about this money.

His exact words are in the minutes of the meeting at the TF which shall be released here in the next article as it pertains to the interest of the Tibetan people and political corruption.  It is common knowledge in India that HH is very disappointed, to say the least, with LS and the way he is using his office for personal glorification.  The only audience he got was in Gaya after months of trying to see HH.  He has no shame and had the audacity to ask HH to mediate and solve the loan issue.  HH’s response is one of pin-drop silence.

There are numerous allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse of power in Dharamshala but all will not come out openly for fear of retribution as you and I know how the law works in India.  A spark/catalyst is much needed if these women are to get justice and it is where my role begins.

I guest Dhardon Sharling is never enough for Lobsang Sangay. He is abusing his power to do this to so many and Ms. Butterfield is just ONE of them. Is there anything more than sex on his mind? I guess not, since he has proven to be incapable to achieve anything for the betterment of the Tibetans. He is just one of those corrupted 'leader' taking advantage of the role to enrich his own agenda and pocket. The amazing thing was that MANY Tibetans still like him. I guess this is their bad karma ripening.

Sexual assault and financial embezzlement are two of the worst crimes any Leader can commit and it is no surprise that Lobsang Sangy did it all.  After all with all that money and beautiful devoted Buddhist women around him, he can only indulge in more physical pleasures.

His office at CTA requires no work efforts from him as nothing had been done and nothing will be done for the betterment of the Tibetans.  All benefits are solely for his pleasure.  Funny how Tibetans can tolerate this.

What about his girlfriend, Dhardon Sharling?  Accepting such humiliation without protest?  Questionable as to why.  Hmmm.....

I saw this post on "Have Your Say" again, so I am posting it here for everyone's reference.

Hello everyone, specially to our CTA Taxi union president Lobsang Sangay and his beneficiary Kashag members and followers,

I am Chokyi I worked in Exile government 15 years.

When Lobsang Sangay fcame to Dharamsala leadership, I researched 2 years through what I have seen and what I listened from him personally. Lobsang Sangay have no personal skill and capability to solve the issues of Tibetans in India. He have only a paper degree from Harvard that’s called R….R….R, which means big talk in Tibetan. I feel so much pity on those uneducated Tibetans who set themselves on fire and burned their bodies. Each self-immolation brought a huge benefit to CTA financially. After every self-immolation Lobsang Sangay and his Kashag members have tour programs under the name of Tibetan political issues to introduce to western countries. Mostly, they travel first/business class. But, once they reached destination Lobsang Sangay asked donations to CTA. This is Sangay’s number 1 capability to ask donors in the name of self- immolation. So, I have known much better what Lobsang Sangay real doing. That’s why I resigned from my post and living independently in US now. Here I humbly request to all ordinary Tibetan people in exile. Plz go to apply for western or Indian citizenship as soon as possible. This is only way how you and your children survive a better life. Don’t listen CTA leaders big talks. Becoz, when you don’t have money to pay your children’s school fees. CTA can’t help you. When your father got serious sickness CTA can’t help you. When your mother died CTA can’t help you. But, CTA will use you for donations in name of seeking help for Tibetans. That donations they will corrupt at the end. Therefore, do something for yourself. Don’t let others use you. This is real experience that I got from CTA in 15 years working from down to earth. Don’t waste your life in CTA’s misuses.

Hahaha... what can Dhardon say? It is probably how she got voted into the CTA anyway. From a nobody to a somebody. So how dare she protest or say anything?

It's just totally disgusting. In the beginning, I thought there was some hope for the Tibetans in exile when H.H. first appointed him, then now we see his true colour. This 2nd time round being voted in as the President of an exile community has made him more daring or big headed. We can see all the nasty things he is doing and with this kind of leadership. Tibetans are doomed! It was way much better when Samdhong Rinpoche was Prime Minister... as lease there was no sleazy news!

Agree... We may not always agree with or like Samdhong Rinpoche, but at least he is a monk with no scandal.
