Soon after the release of the video, dissident Hu Jia, also under house arrest, sent a message to Reporters WIthout Borders :

"Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia are my friends. Both Liu Xiaobo and I have been convicted and jailed by the Communist Party on a charge of "inciting subversion of the state’s authority." Liu Xia has been kept in isolation illegally for the past two years. My wife, Zeng Jinyan, experienced the same fate. We fully understand what Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia are suffering", Hu Jia said.

"By jailing the Nobel peace laureate and by placing his wife under house arrest, turning her into a political prisoner, the Chinese Communist Party is violating human rights. These actions are a source of shame for China."

"As a Chinese citizen, I have a duty to help Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia to break their chains, I have a duty to fight for their freedom. In the past month, I have seen Liu Xia’s solitude and powerlessness even more clearly. I hereby call on the international community and the Chinese public to ensure that Liu Xiaobo and Liu Xia are freed. Let us all speak out together to put pressure on the dictators", concluded the dissident.
