Liu Xia, the wife of Liu Xiaobo, this year’s winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, has been placed under house arrest in her Beijing apartment. She’s been there ever since she visited her husband in prison to inform him about the award.
Liu Xia was permitted to meet her husband after the announcement of this prestigious award, reported here two weeks ago, and she told followers that her husband was dedicating the prize to the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre.
But since returning from that visit, she has not been allowed to leave her apartment and her phone has been cut off. She joins more than 30 Chinese intellectuals who have been detained, warned or placed under surveillance since the Nobel committee announced that it was giving the award to Liu.
