HRD, Blogger

Truong Minh Tam has been actively involved in campaigning against China's policy in the East Sea. He was detained for their activities 2013, and after his release in 2015, he spoke out about mistreatment and torture in Vietnamese prisons.


HRDs working for accountability and democracy receive accusations of being “foreign spies or agents”, “traitors”, or “violators of public order and peace”. HRDS are also subjected to intimidation, threats, interrogation, harassment, arbitrary arrest and detention. When put on trial, they are very often sentenced to heavy jail terms for their human rights work, and mistreated in prison.
