FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) issued the following statement regarding the passing of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Liu Xiaobo.

"Liu Xiaobo was a champion for human rights, freedom of expression, and peaceful democratic change in China.  His life's work remains aspirational to many in China and around the world. One of the reasons he won the Nobel Peace Prize was because he eloquently spoke truth to power. We must continue to pursue Liu's vision and work to secure the ability for his wife, Liu Xia, to leave China for a country of her choosing."
