Press release of the support committee Nguyen Tien Trung (May 7 2010)

Update on the health situation of Nguyen Tien Trung held since July 7, 2009.

According to his parents, Nguyen Tien Trung was in good health. He pumps a day in 1000 to deal with. He would like to read books in computer science, mathematics and novels in French and English but it is forbidden to bring into the prison the books that are not Vietnamese.

The support committee Nguyen Tien Trung has met each other on 1 and 2 May 2010 in Rennes.

Present: Quoc Nam and his wife My Duyen (both regular members of the committee), Nguyen Hoai Nam (Nguyen Tien Trung's brother and vice-chair), Philippe Echard (Chairman) and his wife Zoubida Jadda (Regular Member of the Committee), Marie-Jo Pedrono (regular member of the committee) and Severine Denis (Vice-Chair of the Committee).
The committee's activities during the weekend were:
- On 1 May:
Meeting: talked about current activities and those need to be done.
- May 2: Visit an exhibition on the "boat people" in the building of the "Champs Libres in Rennes.

At the meeting of May 1, the support committee decided:

- To send parcels regularly to Trung (in prison). These packages contain only food.
- To strengthen the partnership with supporting committees involved in the fight for the release of other dissidents in Vietnam.
The visit of the exhibition has been emotional and allowed us to understand more about the boat people of Vietnam, who have paid everything for freedom.
