Chinese dissident author Yu Jie says he has been granted asylum in the United States, and plans to start a website in support of his friend, imprisoned Chinese Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo.
Chinese dissident and author Yu Jie said late Wednesday he was granted asylum in the United States last week and plans to start a website in support of his friend, imprisoned Chinese Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo.
Chinese dissident Yu Jie said Wednesday that security officials in Beijing tortured him to the brink of death because of his political opinions and friendship with another prominent pro-democracy advocate, Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo.
China's premier cultivates the image of a sympathetic "Grandpa Wen," but a new and unusually critical book claims he should be known as "China's Best Actor" instead.
Chinese author Yu Jie is boldly putting his name on a book that criticizes the country's premier.
The book by Chinese dissident author Yu who says he was threatened with imprisonment argues China's premier is not a reformist nor a man of the people, as popularly perceived at home, but a mediocre technocrat who rose to power through good acting.
"I want more people to know about and support Mr. Liu Xiaobo," Yu told The Associated Press, speaking through an interpreter. "I believe he will have a more important role than (South Africa's Nelson) Mandela and (Myanmar's opposition leader Aung San) Suu Kyi, because he comes from a bigger country."
