Viet Nam: Arrested blogger Huynh Thuc Vy must be immediately released

Nouvelle arrestation de la blogueuse et activiste Huynh Thu Vy. Amnesty International demande sa libération immédiate.

Remise en liberté le lendemain, elle reste assignée à résidence et poursuivie au titre de l’article 276 du code pénal pour « insulte au drapeau national ». Le 1er septembre 2017, elle avait enduit de peinture blanche le drapeau national pour protester contre ce symbole d’oppression du peuple vietnamien.

Responding to the arrest of prominent Vietnamese human rights activist and blogger, Huynh Thuc Vy, by police in Buon Ho town, Dak Lak province this morning, Clare Algar, Amnesty International’s Director of Global Operations, said:

“This arrest is nothing more than a politically-motivated attempt to silence one of the most powerful voices for human rights in Viet Nam.

“Through her activism and blogging in support of the rights of women, minorities and human rights in general, Huynh Thuc Vy has worked tirelessly to expose violations and hold the powerful to account. For this, she and her family have been subjected to relentless surveillance, intimidation and harassment by the country’s authorities.

“We urge the authorities of Dak Lak province to immediately and unconditionally release Huynh Thuc Vy and call on Viet Nam’s government to end its systematic suppression of peaceful activism.”

Background

Huynh Thuc Vy is the founder of the organization Vietnamese Women for Human Rights, whose work is to promote the values of human rights and support women human rights defenders in Viet Nam. She regularly blogs about human rights abuses, including the persecution of ethnic minorities in the country.

She was arrested at around 7 am this morning, when more than 30 police officers turned up to her house without an arrest warrant. Police returned to her house several hours later and took several items including a laptop, phones, books, clothes and a camera. Currently, Huynh Thuc Vy’s whereabouts are unknown.

Over the past year, the crackdown on dissent in Viet Nam has intensified, with many activists being arrested, tried unfairly and sentenced to years in prison, leading scores of others flee the country.

Vietnamese Blogger Mother Mushroom Moved From Cell, Still Refuses Food [RFA]

Sixième jour de grève de la faim pour la blogueuse Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh. Rappel de son cas sur Radio Free Asia.

Jailed Vietnamese blogger Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh, also known as Mother Mushroom, is continuing to refuse food despite being transferred to a new cell, a key demand in a hunger strike she launched a week ago, her mother says.

Though she is now safe from a hostile and threatening cellmate in her former cell, she has no privacy in her new location, Quynh’s mother Nguyen Thi Tuyet Lan told RFA’s Vietnamese Service on Thursday.

“The cell is not adequately walled, and even the toilet can be seen from outside,” Lan said after visiting her daughter in prison.

“She is still badly treated by the guards,” said Lan, adding that Quynh is in poor health and “getting thinner.”

Lan said she had urged Quynh during her visit to give up her strike, adding that friends and supporters outside the jail are also urging her to eat, but her daughter had vowed to continue to refuse food.

“She urged us to respect her decision,” Lan said.

Lan said that she was able to leave her daughter with a new set of clothes and a book of English grammar, but that a bible she had hoped to leave was given back by authorities at the jail.

Lynn Nguyen : une leçon d’histoire aux dirigeants du Viêt-Nam

L’État-Parti en République socialiste du Viêt-Nam n’en a pas fini avec ses jeunes vidéo-blogueuses et frondeuses. Pour une voix neutralisée par les services de sécurité, une nouvelle surgit. Hier Nguyên Hoang Vi, Huynh Thuc Vy, Pham Thanh Nghiên, Lâm Ngân Mai, Doan Thi Thuy Duong… harcelées chez elle, frappées par des voyous ou menacées de mort sur la toile. Aujourd’hui, Lynn Nguyen, étudiante vietnamienne à l’étranger, donne une leçon de rhétorique et d’histoire aux dirigeants de la RSVN à travers une « lettre ouverte » vidéographique. Elle dénonce l’obstination du Parti dans sa voix idéologique erronée et passe en revue l’évolution du Viêt-Nam depuis la partition du pays en 1954 et le phénomène des boat people des années 1980 ou encore de la géopolitique chinoise. Depuis la chute de Saigon en 1975, 42 ans de gestion communiste et une ouverture démocratique toujours reportée… Comme précédemment pour Doan Thi Thuy Duong la censure va faire son travail routinier.

Et pour une nouvelle voix neutralisée par les services de sécurité, une nouvelle surgira…

Media Release : peaceful blogger Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh “Mother Mushroom” sentenced to 10 years in prison

Dix ans de prison pour une blogueuse et activiste des droits sociaux. L’Ambassade des États-Unis à Hanoi proteste. Communiqué ci-dessous.

U.S. Department of State
Spokesperson Heather Nauert

Department Press Briefing
Washington, DC
June 29, 2017

We are deeply concerned about the Vietnamese courts and its conviction of the 2017 International Woman of Courage awardee and peaceful blogger, Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh. She’s also known as “Mother Mushroom.” She was sentenced to 10 years in prison under the vague charge of conducting propaganda against the state. […]

The United States calls on Vietnam to release Mother Mushroom and all other prisoners of conscience immediately and to allow all individuals in Vietnam to express their views freely and assemble peacefully without fear of retribution. We’ve seen some positive steps on human rights in Vietnam over the past few years. However, the trend of increased arrests and convictions of peaceful protests since early 2016 is deeply troubling. Progress on human rights will allow the U.S.-Vietnam partnership to reach its fullest potential.

Tuyên bố của Phát ngôn viên Bộ Ngoại giao Hoa Kỳ Heather Nauert về việc kết án Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh

Họp báo của Bộ Ngoại giao

Washington, DC

29/6/2017

Tôi quan ngại sâu sắc về các phiên tòa của Việt Nam và việc kết án người được trao Giải thưởng Phụ nữ Quốc tế Can đảm 2017 và blogger ôn hòa Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh. Cô còn được gọi là “Mẹ Nấm”. Cô đã bị kết án 10 năm tù với buộc tội mơ hồ tuyên truyền chống nhà nước. […]

Hoa Kỳ kêu gọi Việt Nam thả Mẹ Nấm và tất cả các tù nhân lương tâm ngay lập tức và cho phép tất cả cá nhân tại Việt Nam tự do thể hiện quan điểm của mình và tụ họp ôn hòa mà không lo sợ bị trừng phạt. Chúng tôi đã chứng kiến một số bước tích cực về nhân quyền tại Việt Nam trong vài năm qua. Tuy nhiên, xu hướng gia tăng các vụ bắt giữ và kết án các biểu tình ôn hòa kể từ đầu năm 2016 rất đáng lo ngại. Sự tiến bộ về nhân quyền sẽ cho phép quan hệ đối tác Hoa Kỳ-Việt Nam đạt được tiềm năng tối đa.
