Wife of Liu Xiaobo ‘Detained’

The Chinese government is detaining Liu Xia, the wife of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Liu Xiabao, at her Beijing apartment. She has not been charged with a crime, however, she is no longer allowed to leave her apartment.

  1. Liu Xiaobo has received hundreds of thousands of US government funding via the NED in the past five years to conduct domestic political activity in China (including advocating abolition of China’s constitution.) Check NED’s China grants for Independent Chinese Pen Center and Minzhu Zhongguo magazine, which Liu heads.

    If Liu were American he would be in violation of FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act). Ron Paul had once commented “What the NED does in foreign countries… would be rightly illegal in the United States”.
