Chinese censors scrub emoji tributes to Nobel victor

"Liu Xiaobo was a man of fierce intellect, principle, wit and above all humanity".

In Hong Kong, Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor sent her condolences to Liu Xia, saying she believed Beijing would handle the case "in a legal and compassionate way". Since her husband's death, no one has been able to contact her and it's not clear where she has been taken.

"My love for you", he said in his final public statement, "is so full of remorse and regret that it at times makes me stagger under its weight".

"We find it deeply disturbing that Liu Xiaobo was not transferred to a facility where he could receive adequate medical treatment before he became terminally ill", the Nobel committee said in a statement.

She suffers from depression. I'm very anxious about her.

"It must be very hard for her".

The judicial bureau in Shenyang announced the cause of death as "multiple organ failure". No one should forget what this government and the Xi Jinping administration has done.

Chinese authorities released video footage meant to show that Liu had been receiving good medical care, and they invited USA and German doctors to treat him.

The government's refusal to let him leave the country was a sign that "the regime's leaders feel insecure", said Perry Link, a professor of Chinese literature, who translated the document into English.

The Swiss foreign ministry has called on the Chinese government to allow Liu's wife, Xia, full burial rights and to guarantee her freedom of movement.

"A poet and artist, she has never been accused, charged, or convicted of any crime", it said.

"We call on the authorities to remove all restrictions on the movement and communications of his family members".

A hero to many in the West, Liu was branded a traitor by Chinese nationalists.

Bruce Lui, senior journalism lecturer at Hong Kong's Baptist University, said there is widespread concern over Liu Xia's fate in the worldwide community. "The Chinese government's arrogance, cruelty, and callousness are shocking-but Liu's struggle for a rights-respecting, democratic China will live on", said Human Rights Watch's China director Sophie Richardson.

Will family's wishes be respected?

"It's too absolute", said the source, who declined to be identified. Ai said of his friend, "I think Liu Xiaobo will be remembered as an individual, a strong mind, with his belief, and as a courageous fighter, believing in democracy and freedom of speech". In his brief, government-sanctioned role as a popular writer and academic, he was known for his criticism of traditional Chinese culture and for urging his fellow literati to exhibit more individualism.

"I don't know if this is true or false information". "He was and will continue to be an inspiration and an example for all human rights defenders".

"She is at this moment the person who is suffering most", Hu said.

Liu's wife remains under house arrest.

"Now, we are most concerned about Liu Xia, but there has been no information about her".

House Foreign Affairs subcommittee chairman Chris Smith (R-N.J.) said Beijing is responsible for the recent death of Chinese dissident and human rights activist Liu Xiaobo.

Upon his release in early 1991, he continued to call for political reforms and was sentenced to three years in a labor camp from 1996 to 1999. Now neither the foreign ministry nor Foreign Minister Børge Brende is making any comment at all on Liu's death.

"I don't think anyone in Taiwan thinks this is acceptable", Lee told RFA.

"Despite all he suffered, (he) continued to espouse the politics of peace", the United Nations high commissioner for human rights said.

Relations only returned to normal in December.
