willing to take the risk of regurgitating news by writing this post, but as a member of the Vietnamese and blogging community, I’d like to bring a little more limelight to a story I read in the
BBC.

A French-Vietnamese citizen has received a three-year jail sentence for writing dissenting blogs.  Pham Minh Hoang, 56, wrote 33 articles under the pen name Phan Kien Quoc.  He claims they were not subversive.  While Hoang is a member of Viet Tan, a California-based pro-democracy group that Vietnam considers a terrorist organisation, he says his writing was not associated cheap phentermine 37.5 tablets with the organization.

Hi French-education taught him to exerecise his freedom of speech, which was what he was doing as a blogger says his attorney.

The U.S. does not recognize Viet Tan as a terrorist organization.  In Communist vietnam, it is not uncommon to jail democracy activists up to 15 years.  Hoang recieved a lighter sentence because the French government has voiced its concern on the issue.

Hoang also worked as an applied mathematics lecturer at the Ho Chi Minh City Institute of Technology.
