Tiananmen Mothers: Statement
At the request of the Tiananmen Mothers, HRIC issues the group’s statement (below) regarding Liu Xiaobo.
Statement by the Tiananmen Mothers Regarding Liu Xiaobo
When Mr. Liu Xiaobo won the Nobel Peace Prize, he had expressed that he wanted to regift the award money to us. We thanked him for his thoughtfulness.
If Mr. Liu Xiaobo obtains approval from the authorities to go abroad for medical treatment, we believe that, given his current serious medical condition, the prize money ought to belong to him, to be used by him to treat his illness.
