Nobel chinês Liu Xiaobo morre aos 61 anos

Nobel chinês Liu Xiaobo morre aos 61 anos

Após a declaração do domingo dos médicos, a China lançou pequenos vídeos de sua visita, aparentemente levados sem o seu conhecimento, no qual o médico alemão pareceu louvar o cuidado que Liu recebeu dos médicos chineses.

Pequim reagiu às acusações afirmando que a "China é um Estado de direito e que o caso Liu Xiaobo é um assunto interno chinês que não corresponde aos países estrangeiros".

Para a organização Human Rights Watch, a morte do dissidente chinês Liu Xiaobo "mostra a crueldade" do Governo da China em relação aos defensores pacíficos dos Direitos Humanos e da democracia.

O secretário de Estado americano, Rex Tillerson, disse que Liu se dedicou "ao bem da Humanidade", e apelou para que Pequim libere a viúva do ativista, a artista Liu Xia, em prisão domiciliar, e deixe-a sair do país.

O vice-presidente da Assembleia Legislativa e deputado eleito por sufrágio indireto Lam Heong Sang advertiu os parlamentares de que não podem aproveitar o período anterior à ordem do dia para abordar questões relativas à China, em respeito da Lei Básica de Macau e do princípio "um país, dois sistemas".

O dissidente chinês Liu Xiaobo morreu hoje aos 61 anos, anunciaram as autoridades da província de Liaoning, onde o Nobel da Paz de 2010 estava hospitalizado com cancro do fígado.

"Liu Xiaobo foi a verdadeira encarnação dos ideais democráticos e não violentos que ele ardentemente preconizava".

Recorda igualmente que o dissidente recebeu inúmeros prémios internacionais, além do prémio Nobel da Paz e incluindo o atribuído pela HRW, o Alison Des Forges por Extraordinário Ativismo, "pelo seu compromisso destemido com a liberdade de expressão e de reunião na China".

Em 2009, o ativista foi condenado a 11 anos de prisão, acusado de "subversão" após reivindicar reformas no país.

Ele foi recentemente transferido da prisão para o hospital para ser tratado por seu câncer.

Um jornal do Partido Comunista Chinês (PCC) publicou esta sexta-feira um editorial a dizer que Liu Xiaobo, dissidente chinês e Nobel da Paz, que morreu na quinta-feira, vítima de um cancro, era um peão do Ocidente, cujo legado desaparecerá em breve.

O alto comissário da ONU para os Direitos Humanos, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, pediu à China que garanta a liberdade de movimento da esposa Liu Xia e permita que ela viaje para o exterior, se assim o desejar.

O Global Times considerou que os últimos dias de Liu foram "politizados por forças estrangeiras", que usaram a doença de Liu para "promoverem a sua imagem e demonizarem a China".

Encarcerado num campo de reeducação "pelo trabalho" entre 1996 e 1999 e afastado da universidade, Liu tornou-se um dos animadores do Centro Independente Pen China, um grupo de escritores.
