UK Today News: Liu Xiaobo’s Nobel Peace Prize 2010 Win Not Taken Very Well By China
The Nobel Peace Prize 2010 was awarded to jailed Chinese human rights campaigner Liu Xiaobo, and this award is one of the most prestigious awards of the world. However, China has not taken it too well.
Reports state that there was no news in the media about 54 year old Liu receiving the Nobel Peace Prize except some of the newspapers publishing it. The reason behind this is pretty clear since Liu is responsible for creating many obstacles in the government’s workings.
Some say that whatever may be the case on the political front, China surely came into limelight. Reports state, “Liu’s winning will put more of an international spotlight on the situation in China which has been lacking and that’s good.”
Liu has been a regular visitor of jail and on 25th December last year, he had been awarded a 11 years jail term.
