Vietnam – Confirmation on appeal of blogger’s six-year prison sentence (November 22, 2012)
France strongly deplores the confirmation on appeal of the six-year prison sentence against Mr Dinh Dang Dinh for “propaganda against the state”.
The ruling, issued on 21 November by the appeals court in Dak Nong Province, follows those issued on 24 September against three bloggers and on 30 October against two musicians and composers.
France reiterates her commitment to freedom of expression and opinion – including on the Internet – throughout the world.
