Great Regulars: Authorities in Beijing have detained

the brother-in-law of jailed Nobel Peace laureate Liu Xiaobo, in what is being seen as a further act of official retaliation against the family.

Liu Hui, brother of Liu's wife Liu Xia, who is herself under house arrest in the capital, was detained on Jan. 31 on criminal charges linked to a property dispute, his lawyer Mo Shaoping said on Friday.

"Liu Hui was detained last year . . . and then released on bail and re-detained in January," Mo said.
