Widow of Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo ‘should be able to leave China’ if she chooses, says UN human rights chief

UN rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said Thursday he plans to meet with Chinese officials to push for assurances that the widow of late dissident Liu Xiaobo will be allowed to leave China. Zeid came under fierce criticism from Beijing for his tribute to the Nobel laureate as a “principled champion” who “was jailed for standing up for his beliefs.”
