Nobel Peace Center In Oslo
December 10, 2011 by staff
Nobel Peace Center In Oslo, Ahead of this weekend’s Nobel Peace Prize presentation in Oslo, a group of five peace laureate winners has called for the release of jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, a fellow Nobel recipient, arguing that the world has already begun to stop thinking about his case.
“Unfortunately, the sentencing to 11 years in prison seems to be forgotten slowly but steadily outside China,” said the International Committee of Support to Liu Xiaobo, according to the Associated Press.
Mr. Liu is currently serving an 11-year prison sentence after being charged with subverting state power for helping author a 2008 manifesto called “Charter 08” which called for an end to China’s single-party rule. He won the 2010 peace prize for his work to promote greater human rights protection and democracy in China.
The group of former laureates included Shirin Ebadi, Jody Williams, Mairead Maguire, Betty Williams and Desmond Tutu, the AP reported.
