Vietnam – Sentencing of Hoang Thi Minh Hong (September 29, 2023)


France is deeply concerned by the conviction and sentencing of Hoang Thi Minh Hong, the environmental activist and founder of the advocacy group CHANGE, to three years’ imprisonment. France was already alarmed by her arrest on May 31. We will raise her case during upcoming discussions with the Vietnamese authorities.

France reiterates the importance it attributes to the fight against climate change and the preservation of biodiversity, to which civil society can make an active contribution.
