2008年，劉曉波因《零八憲章》被捕，於2010年獲提名諾貝爾和平獎並獲獎，自此，劉霞即被北京當局軟禁家中，單獨遭嚴密監視。《公民權利和政治權利國際公約》第九條訂明，人人有權享有人身自由和安全；並指除非依照 法律所確定的根據和程序，任何人不得被剝奪自由 。但多年來劉霞均是沒有被控以任何罪名，亦未經公平法律程序，卻平白遭剝奪人身自由。
Liu Xiaobo, Nobel Peace Prize Winner and a prisoner of conscience, has passed away on 13 July 2017 at age 61. Liu Xiaobo was arrested in 2008 and charged for “inciting subversion of state power”, and at the same time, his wife, Liu Xia, was under house arrest for more than 6 years just because she attempted saving her husband from wrong imprisonment. We urge the Chinese authority to end the illegal house arrest and surveillance of Liu Xia, stop the harassments and allow her to travel freely.
Liu Xiaobo’s pro-democracy manifesto, Charter 08, has put him in prison. In 2010, Liu Xiaobo received the Nobel Peace Prize because of his call for peaceful political reform. However, the Chinese authority not only did not release Liu Xiaobo, but further put Liu Xia under illegal house arrest and surveillance. According to article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, everyone has the right to liberty and security of person, and shall not be subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention not in accordance with such procedure as are established by law. However, Liu Xia has been detained without charge or trial, stripped of communication with the outside world and personal freedom.
Without any forms of social support under house arrest, Liu Xia has experienced tremendous psychological and emotional distresses throughout these years. Such psychological torture by the Chinese authority has been causing serious damage to the health of Liu Xia. We seriously condemn the Chinese authority for exerting all forms of violence and human rights violations towards Liu Xia.
We request the Chinese authority to end Liu Xia’s illegal house arrest and surveillance, stop all forms of harassment towards Liu Xia and her family, and allow her to make contacts and travel freely.
We call on the international society to keep concerning about the physical and psychological health of Liu Xia, protect her civil and political rights, and advance the human rights situation in China.
