China: Free Liu Xiaobo & Liu Xia

, N° d'index: ASA 17/047/2010

Dr Liu Xiaobo, prominent Chinese literary scholar and 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, is serving an 11-year prison sentence on charges of “inciting subversion of state power” imposed after an unfair trial on 25 December 2009. His wife Liu Xia, a poet and artist, was placed under illegal “house arrest” on 8 October 2010. In this document Amnesty International calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Liu Xiaobo and for the lifting of surveillance and all restrictions on Liu Xia’s freedom of movement, freedom of expression and association.
