CHINESE NOBEL LAUREATE’S BROTHER IN-LAW SENTENCED TO 11 YEARS

Weekly Standard on June 14, 2013, published a report by Daniel Halper that the brother in-law of Chinese Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo had been sentenced to 11 years in prison. Excerpts below:

“In May, 2011, the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention determined the arrest and imprisonment of Liu Xiaobo and the extralegal house arrest of his wife Liu Xia to be in contravention of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We urge Chinese authorities to release Liu Xiaobo, as well as his wife Liu Xia, immediately and to guarantee Liu Xiaobo and his family members the protections and freedoms to which they are entitled under China’s international human rights obligations and commitments. As President Obama told President Xi in California last week, history shows that upholding universal rights is ultimately a key to success, prosperity, and justice for all nations.”, State Department spokesman Jen Psaki says in a statement.
