Case Against Chinese Dissident Liu Xiaobo Sent To Prosecutors


Chinese police have presented the case against one of the country’s most prominent dissidents to prosecutors, after detaining him for a year.

Liu Xiaobo’s lawyer Shang Baojun said the investigators’ report alleged that the author incited the subversion of state power through articles he published on the internet and by helping to write Charter 08, an appeal for democratic reforms and greater civil liberties.

His wife Liu Xia said she learned that police had finished their report last night – exactly one year after officers took her husband from their home. He was formally arrested six months later.
