Why did Beijing try to tell the Nobel Committee whom not to give this year’s Nobel Peace Price to?

Here’s the official explanation:

“‘Everyone knows what kind of person Hu Jia is, he is a criminal that was convicted and sentenced to prison by the state judiciary of inciting the subversion of state power,’ foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang said. ‘If they award the peace prize to such a person, it would be rude interference in China’s internal affairs as well as our independent judiciary.'”

So, who is this “criminal”, who is so dangerously subverting state power?
