Liu Xiaobo is receiving medical treatment from China's top cancer experts, said the Liaoning Prison Administrative Bureau on Monday.

Liu was sentenced to 11 years in jail on December 25, 2009, after a court in Beijing convicted him of engaging in activities designed to overthrow the government.

Liu has been granted medical parole after he was diagnosed with liver cancer recently. The No. 1 Hospital of China Medical University has assigned a team composed of eight renowned cancer experts to formulate medical plans and treat Liu, read a press release on the website of the Liaoning Prison Administrative Bureau.

The Oslo-based Nobel Committee conferred the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize to Liu.
