Vietnam Pressured To Release Jailed Internet Users


Three young Internet users detained by Vietnamese security forces for visiting a chat room and website dedicated to religious freedom were still in jail Saturday, December 17, a day after the Paris-based press freedom organization Reporters Without Borders demanded their release.

In late October BosNewsLife was among the first international news organizations to report on the arrests in Ho Chi Min City of Truong Quoc Tuan and his two brothers, Truong Quoc Huy and Truong Quoc Nghia with his fiancee, Lisa Pham, a Vietnamese with US residency. Truong Quoc Nghia was reportedly released later, but Reporters Without Borders said it is still concerned about the other three detainees.

"Reached by telephone Chau Thi Hoang, the mother of Truong Quoc Tuan and Truong Quoc Huy, confirmed that her two sons are still being held along with Lisa Pham, the fiancee of one of the brothers," Reporters Without Borders added.
