China blocks famous artist, economist from flights

Posted by Author on December 3, 2010

Washington Post, Friday, December 3, 2010 –

BEIJING — China’s crackdown before next week’s Nobel Peace Prize ceremony has widened to block a well-known artist and an economist who’s more than 80-years old from traveling overseas.

Artist Ai Weiwei says he was stopped from getting on a flight from Beijing to Seoul on Thursday night.

Economist Mao Yushi says he was stopped from flying to Singapore Wednesday morning.
Both are supporters of Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, who is now serving an 11-year prison sentence for subversion.

Liu’s wife has been confined to her home as China appears to be blocking Liu’s family and supporters from traveling to Norway for the Dec. 10 ceremony.
