The wife of Chinese Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo, depressed from being forcibly sequestered at home alone for the past three years by state security, is issuing a few humble requests: Let her see a doctor independently. Read her husband's letters. Make a living.
Chinese activist Zeng Jinyan declined to publicly disclose the source of her information for fear of more official retaliation.
But another close friend, Xu Youyu, a retired professor, said the requests were in line with what he had heard about Liu Xia from the couple's relatives and other sources.
