The Nobel Peace Prize: Award Ceremony Speech, by Mr. Thorbjørn Jagland, Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee

"We regret that the Laureate is not present here today. He is in isolation in a prison in north-east China. Nor can the Laureate’s wife Liu Xia or his closest relatives be here with us. No medal or diploma will therefore be presented here today. This fact alone shows that the award was necessary and appropriate. We congratulate Liu Xiaobo on this year’s Peace Prize."
