Bowing to Chinese Pressure, Vietnam Places Falun Gong Radio Broadcasters on Trial: Freedom House


Two Vietnamese Falun Gong members will go on trial this week for broadcasting news on human rights abuses, protests, official corruption, and the persecution of Falun Gong members in China. Vu Duc Trung and his brother in-law Le Van Thanh were arrested by Vietnamese authorities in June of 2010 and their broadcasting equipment was confiscated for downloading and broadcasting programs into China from the Chinese-language version of “Sound of Hope” (SOH), a global radio station associated with the Falun Gong. If convicted, Trung and Thanh could face up to 5 years in prison.
