Vietnam jails French-Vietnamese teacher over blogs - Technology - MiamiHerald.com: "Pham Minh Hoang, 56, was found guilty of trying to overthrow the government by posting 33 articles against the one-party Communist system, as well as of holding membership in the banned Viet Tan group and recruiting others to join it. It was the second high-profile dissident trial in just over a week.
U.S.-based Viet Tan says it is a nonviolent advocate of democracy, but Hanoi considers it a terror organization - a claim U.S. officials say they have not found any evidence to support."
Letter to prime minister requesting blogger Pham Minh Hoang’s release - Reporters Without Borders: "The Vietnamese justice system is going to try Mr. Hoang on a charge of trying to overthrow the people’s government because he wrote articles in his blog, gave extra-curricular training in leadership to his students and is a member of the Viet Tan pro-democracy party.
These activities are nonetheless guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and articles 35, 50, 53 and 69 of your country’s Constitution. The only appropriate outcome to Mr. Hoang’s trial would therefore be his acquittal and unconditional release. Mr. Hoang must recover his complete freedom.
Vietnam is increasingly the target of criticism for its human rights violations . . ."
