Ban, as the sitting UN general secretary, should discuss this whenever he meets with a state leader, especially China, a permanent member of UN Security Council.
The human rights crisis is much more serious than a convicted chinese dissident. I dare Ban has the guts to discuss this.

Elimination of poverty, increased political participaton are all solid human rights. Liu’s advocacy of American democracy has no appeal to the majority of Chinese. His value system of adoring colonialism has no place in the psyche of the Chinese people. His unrefined personality is considered very uncivilized in Chinese culture.
