Dissident Liu won the Nobel Peace prize in 2010, but is serving an eleven-year prison sentence, and his wife is under house arrest.

Mo Yan told the media, "I have already issued my opinion about this matter, I have said this prize is about literature. Not for politics", news agency Reuters reports.
