China should lift restrictions on Liu Xiaobo’s widow – Nobel committee

Liu Xia, wife of veteran Chinese pro-democracy activist Liu Xiaobo, wipes her eyes as she speaks in Beijing.

:: The Norwegian Nobel Committee, which awards the Nobel Peace Prize, said on Friday it was “deeply worried” about the situation of Liu Xia, the widow of Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo, after his death on Thursday.

“The Norwegian Nobel Committee is deeply worried about Liu Xia’s situation in the aftermath of her husband’s tragic death,” Olav Njoelstad, the secretary of the committee, said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

“We call upon Chinese authorities to lift all restrictions they have put upon her. If she wants to leave China, there is no justification for denying her the opportunity to do so.”
