A Vietnamese engineer graduated in France may risk death penalty (press release)

Because of his call for more freedom of speech and democracy in Vietnam, Nguyễn Tiến Trung has been imprisoned since the 7th of July 2009 and may be sentenced to death.

During his 5 years of study at the INSA of Rennes in France, he founded a worldwide-known association: the Young Vietnamese for Democracy Association.

Before the trial which will take place in Hô-Chi-Minh-City on January 20th, we, the support committee, ask for the immediate release and for the quashing of all charges against Nguyễn Tiến Trung.
