It's been one year, Nguyen Tien Trung was arrested in Vietnam

(Translated from Ouest-France)

Sad anniversary.
A year ago to the day, a former student of Rennes, Nguyen Tien Trung, was arrested in his country, Vietnam, "attempting to overthrow the regime of the people." He was sentenced to 7 years in prison and three years of house arrest.

Trung studied five years in Rennes from 2002 to 2007, when he received his diploma in computer engineering from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA). During these years the young man now 27 years created the Association "Vietnamese Youth for Democracy". During an internship in the U.S., he met exiled Vietnamese and Canadian Prime Minister and former President George Bush ... After graduation, he returned to Vietnam. In March 2007 he was called up. He was arrested and jailed July 7, 2009.

Since then, a support committee was formed with former classmates and teachers Insa. City and County, as Reporters Without Borders and Amnesty International, continues to press for his release. For them, Trung was taken as an example.
