Dharamsala, December 28 – His Holiness the Dalai Lama has expressed his sadness over the sentencing to 11 years’ imprisonment of a Chinese dissident and democracy activist Liu Xiabo.

“By sentencing Liu Xiaobo and others like him, who use freedom of expression to publicly articulate their opinions, the Chinese authorities have not only violated the binding principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights but also the freedom of expression mentioned in the Constitution of the People's Republic of China,” the Tibetan leader said in a statement posted today on his official website.

His Holiness appealed the Chinese Government to release Liu and other political prisoners who were jailed for exercising their freedom of expression.

“I offer my regards and prayers to Mr. Liu Xiaobo, his wife and other family members.”
