Liu Xiaobo’s wife kept from doing interviews

Posted by Author on October 8, 2010

The wife of Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo is being prevented from giving interviews to the media, her brother said in a statement on Friday, expressing his joy at news of the award.

“The police are at the home of Liu’s wife Liu Xia and are preventing her from giving interviews,” Liu Tong was quoted as saying in a statement released by the Hong Kong-based Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy.

Repeated calls by AFP to Liu Xia rang busy. About 20 minutes ahead of the announcement, she told AFP she had no news as to whether her husband would be honoured.
Liu, 54, was honoured for his “long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China”, Norwegian Nobel Committee president Thorbjoern Jagland said.

The writer, who was previously jailed for his involvement in the 1989 Tiananmen pro-democracy protests, was sentenced in December to 11 more years in prison for subversion — a punishment that earned international condemnation.

Liu was arrested in late 2008 after co-writing Charter 08, a widely circulated petition that called for political reform in the Communist-ruled nation.

At Liu Xia’s home in western Beijing, plainclothes security personnel removed journalists from inside the compound gates, demanding their identification and filming members of the press pack at the scene.

Earlier in the day, up to six police guarded the door to the apartment of Liu Xia, who was not seen, an AFP correspondent witnessed.
