President Obama Must Call Viet Nam to Release over 80 Prisoners of Conscience

When President Obama travels to Viet Nam this month, he must call for the immediate and unconditional release of over 80 prisoners of conscience imprisoned for their peaceful political activities, urged Amnesty International in advance of the visit.

“While president Obama aggressively promotes trade with Viet Nam, he must also give equal weight to the suffering of Vietnamese people by raising human rights issues. Especially concerning the release of over 80 prisoners of conscience,” said T. Kumar, advocacy director for Asia for Amnesty International USA.
