Amnesty International is calling for the immediate and unconditional release of internationally acclaimed writer and human rights defender Pham Doan Trang after her arrest yesterday.  


Excerpt:

Responding to the arrest of Pham Doan Trang, Amnesty International’s Deputy Regional Director for Campaigns, Ming Yu Hah, said:
“The arrest of Pham Doan Trang is reprehensible. She is a leading figure in the struggle for human rights in Viet Nam. She has inspired countless young activists to speak up for a more just, inclusive, and free Viet Nam.

“Pham Doan Trang faces an imminent risk of torture and other-ill treatment at the hands of the Vietnamese authorities. She must be immediately and unconditionally released.

“Pham Doan Trang has faced persecution due to her work as a woman human rights defender since her return to Viet Nam in 2015.  She previously required hospitalization after being subjected to torture and gender-based violence following her arbitrary arrest in 2018.”
