In May 2007, Le Thi Cong Nhan, a Vietnamese Christian and lawyer, was sentenced to four years in prison followed by three years of house arrest. Nhan was arrested and sentenced alongside Nguyen Van Dai, a Protestant church leader and lawyer. They are accused of a wide range of crimes; such as “conspiring with terrorists, in their efforts to promote human rights efforts, including religious rights and democracy.” They are also accused of compiling “evidence of Vietnam’s suppression of the Protestant religion and providing it to the U.S.-based Committee for Religious Freedom in Vietnam.”

Be aware: I have often written letters to such prisoners and have found (usually through VOM.org) that their contact info is not up-to-date. Trouble is, prisoners can be moved,etc and the organization is not aware of it or unable to get info, etc. Most of my letters tend to be returned to me as Undeliverable. Also, when i have written emails to ambassadors or other political officials often the email addresses are defunct, not up to date, having been changed or closed down. I have wasted a lot of money on postage that could be better spent. Thus, i advise you, before you write it might pay to ask the organization when the contact info was last updated or if they know for sure that it is recent. I put so much time and effort into so many emails and letters only to have them returned to me Undeliverable that i finally just gave up altogether.
