Quote: "Despite presenting their documents, Pedroletti and company were also interrogated for five hours by the members of Yarchen Gar’s state-controlled management committee. Besides the interrogation, the officials also checked their cameras.
According to the reporter, the ‘unconvinced’ officials then locked them in their hotel room ordering them to leave the place by 9 a.m. the next day.
“They chased us away the next day, and we could not see Yarchen Gar or the complex (Larung Gar) in nearby Serthar County,” he said.
