我們想讓你知道的是

諾貝爾委員會就劉曉波保外就醫事件發表聲明,指中國要負上重大責任。

諾貝爾委員會就劉曉波保外就醫事件發表聲明,提到劉曉波因為言論而被監禁,他患上末期癌症,中國當局需負上重大責任,因為當局剝奪了劉曉波的治療機會。

委員會的聲明提到,為劉曉波終於離開監獄感到高興,但同時很遺憾得知他患上嚴重疾病。劉曉波在中國爭取民主和人權的鬥爭,已經付出沉重代價。他因為行使其言論自由而被定罪一事本身已不合理,而由於中國當局的監禁,剝奪了劉曉波應得的治療機會,中國要承擔重大責任。

委員會希望中國無條件釋放劉曉波,讓他得到最好的治療,無論是在中國還是海外。

委員會確認早已向劉曉波提出去奧斯陸的邀請,希望向劉曉波致敬。並重提由於中國監禁劉曉波,令他無法出席2010年諾貝爾和平獎頒獎典禮,當時在奧斯陸市政廳的台上,留了一張空櫈給劉曉波。

聲明的英文全文

The Committee is delighted to learn that Liu Xiaobo is out of prison at long last. At the same time the Committee strongly regrets that it took serious illness before Chinese authorities were willing to release him from jail.

Liu Xiaobo has fought a relentless struggle in favour of democracy and human rights in China and has already paid a heavy price for his involvement. He was, essentially, convicted for exercising his freedom of speech and should never have been sentenced to jail in the first place.

Chinese authorities carry a heavy responsibility if Liu Xiaobo, because of his imprisonment, has been denied necessary medical treatment. The Committee hopes that he will now be released without conditions and offered the best possible treatment for his illness, whether it be in China or abroad.

Finally, the Committee would like to confirm its standing invitation to Liu Xiaobo to come to Oslo and receive the Committee's tribute. Due to his imprisonment Liu Xiaobo was unable to attend the Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony in 2010. His designated chair at the podium in the Oslo City Hall was left empty.
