  • Vietnam – Sentencing of Pham Viet Dao (19.03.14)

  • Vietnam - Arrest of blogger Truong Duy Nhat (27.05.13)

    This arrest follows a series of convictions handed down against rights defenders in Vietnam since autumn 2012, which breach human rights. France notably expressed its concerns after two young Vietnamese, Nguyen Phuong Uyen and Dinh Nguyen Kha, were sentenced to heavy punishments on 16 May. France is particularly attentive to these issues, which are the subject of a dialogue between the European Union and Vietnam.
