China says Nobel Prize to Liu Xiaobo aimed at disrespecting country's judicial system

China has questioned the true intentions of people behind awarding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo, and accused them of disrespecting the Chinese judicial system.


New Delhi, Oct 13 : China has questioned the "true intentions" of people behind awarding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo, and accused them of disrespecting the Chinese judicial system.

Liu was sentenced to 11 years in jail on December 25, 2009, after a court in Beijing convicted him of an agitation aimed at subverting the government.

"The Norwegian Nobel Committee, by giving the Peace Prize to a convicted person in China, shows no respect for the judicial system of China," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu in Beijing.

Asked to comment on the award, which was announced Friday in Oslo, Ma said politicians from some countries are using the award as an opportunity to attack China.

"This is not only disrespect for China's judicial system but also puts a big question mark on their true intention," Xinhua quoted Ma, as saying.

The spokesman said China has made remarkable achievements in development since the start of the reform and opening-up, including continuous progress in human rights.

"This is widely acknowledged by the international community. If some people try to change China's political system in this way and try to stop the Chinese people from moving forward, they are obviously making a mistake," Ma said.
