Released...with conditions

Jigme Guri, now 50, was originally scheduled to be released on 20 August 2016, exactly five years after his arrest. This date was pushed back to 26 October. According to a court decision, his family were to receive him at the gates of the local court. However, when the day of his release arrived he was instead returned home secretly during the night in a police vehicle.
