The Chinese authorities have the prominent human rights activist Xu Zhiyong Saturday released. That happened precisely the day that his dissident friend and nobel prize winner Liu Xiaobo, Thursday, died of liver cancer, was cremated.

Xu is the co-founder of the “New citizens ‘movement’, that political change is pursuing in China.

He was awarded in 2014 to four years in prison for “disturbance of public order”. His conviction led internationally to great indignation.

Xu, who is in his release a fit impression was “shocked” by the news of the death of Liu. That told his lawyer Saturday in the South China Morning Post.

Xu’s supporters hope that he is now really left alone. A number complained via social media that the guards and agents in the citizens blocked them at the apartment complex where Xu lives.
