Nobel Peace Prize 2010 for Liu Xiaobo

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2010 was announced today at 11 am. The winner of the Award is Liu Xiaobo for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China. The Norwegian Nobel Committee has long believed that there is a close connection between human rights and peace.

Liu Xiaobo is imprisoned since 2009.

It's sad that he won't be able to attend the awards ceremony and banquet (because I don't believe China is going to bow to international pressure to free him from prison). I wonder if maybe his wife will accept the award on his behalf?

Does anyone know what happens when/if the recipient can't attend the awards?

It's really very unlikely he will be freed...

I don't know if this ever happened so far...

He was imprisoned for 11 years and I doubt he's going to be freed to collect a prize which congratulates him for the activity that put him in prison.
There was a section about this on the BBC news this evening and I was quite impressed by what I heard.

Congrats to him. I don't think they(China) will allow anyone to accept on Xiaobo's behalf. It sounds like his wife is now under unofficial house arrest.

This shows that it was definately the right choice and that China needs reforms.

I highly doubt that will happen. I gotta wonder what the Nobel Committee's back-up back-up plan will be.

Xiabobo really deserves the prize and it is a shame how China reacted.

My guess is they'll probably hold the ceremony anyway with a documentary on him. It's a shame the Crown Prince couple won't be at the ceremony.

The ceremony will start tomorrow at 1 pm local time. The Royal couple will attend.
In the evening they will also attend the reception in the Grand Hotel in Oslo.

The nobel committee will not give out the medal and diploma. It will be a empty chair in Oslo city hall under the ceremony.

King Harald and Queen Sonja attended the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo,
December 10, 2010. China's rivals welcomed on Friday the awarding of the
Nobel Peace Prize to jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, while some of Beijing's
allies questioned what they called the politicisation of the annual award.

This particular Nobel ceremony is a wonderful celebration of human rights and freedom of expression - and in the presence of, and under the auspices of, King Harald. What a marvellous celebration of the positive relationship between constitutional monarchy and democratic life. Congratulations and thanks to the The Nobel Peace Committee and the Norwegian hosts for honouring Liu Xiaobo.
