Havel endorses Nobel Peace Prize for Chinese dissident

Prague Daily Monitor - Liu Xiaobo was sentenced to 11 years in prison over the Charter 08 initiative for the improvement of human rights standards in China which was inspired by the Charter 77 Czechoslovak anti-communist humans rights manifesto.

China warned against awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo, similarly like last year when it criticised another Chinese candidate Hu Jia, an activist fighting for AIDS patients' rights.
