The panel heard from academics and activists familiar with Liu's work. "It is the family's wish and common sense to leave her undisturbed to handle Liu Xiaobo's funeral", the report said. The White House released a short statement Thursday that said President Trump was "deeply saddened" by the news of Liu's death, noting that he was a "poet, scholar and courageous advocate" who had "dedicated his life to the pursuit of democracy and liberty". Liu had been a visiting scholar at Columbia University in NY but returned early to China in May 1989 to join the movement that was sweeping the country and which the Communist Party regarded as a grave challenge to its authority.
It was in May 1989 Xiaobo rose to global prominence when he left his job as a visiting scholar in Columbia University for Beijing to join thousands of students in a protest in Tianenmen Square.

Liu was sentenced to jail on December 25, 2009. Friends of Liu Xiaobo's family say efforts to persuade Beijing to allow the couple to leave China were motivated not so much to seek treatment for the terminally ill political prisoner but to facilitate an escape for his severely depressed wife.

Xi has been leader of China since 2013 and oversaw the country during four years of Liu's detention.
Inevitably, some in the West will think that honoring Liu Xiaobo is an act of offense against China (or, more practically, a potential risk to relationships with the government). Liu and his fellow hunger-strikers, fearing a bloodbath in the square, acted as negotiators between military forces and the remaining demonstrators. The Norwegian Nobel Committee honoured Liu for his long and non-violent fight for fundamental human rights in China.
