A hearing on the poor human rights situation in Vietnam currently was held on Thursday 24 01-2012 at the U.S. House of Representatives chaired by Rep. Christopher Smith, a senior member of the House Committee in charge of foreign affairs. Congressman Smith has strongly recommended the U.S. government put Vietnam back on the list of CPC countries with bad human rights record and suppression of religion seriously and systematically. United States and other Western countries increasingly expressed concern about the evolution of human rights were trampled in Vietnam since Vietnam was taken out from the CPC list in 2006. Numerous cases of illegal arrest against the religious youth activities, the Bloggers and those who express political opinions peacefully in 2011 along with a series of violent repression actions to Religion occurred in the parish of Thai Ha Ha Noi, My Loc parishes in Vinh diocese and particularly serious is the use of mines to attack Catholic Missionary Con Cuong Vinh diocese.
In addition, human trafficking, a problem which causes sore Global in the country, in the social community in which Vietnam is a nation have been noted for years. According to Dr. Nguyen Dinh Thang, director of the Commission over the sea rescue (Boat People SOS) and a member of the co-founder Camssa Organization Alliance, an organization operating effectively combat trafficking in persons accused of Government of Vietnam had abused a systematic way in the protection of labor export hundreds thousands of people every year.

Entering the new year 2012, the human rights situation in Vietnam is not only not improved but there are more signs that the more serious. The right of expression of peaceful citizens have been tightened and state authorities arresting people indiscriminately in a spread that does not comply with legal process, has led to domestic and international public opinion on a much more urgent. Governments at all levels is arbitrary action, do not respect the law, respect religious people. Prefer confrontation rather than dialogue with the people in dispute resolution. Abuse of power and oppression when people do not achieve the purpose of evil and despicable her immediately mobilized the police, the army crackdown despite the benefits and the life of the people. We hope that after the case in Tien Lang, government leaders at all levels will wake up and understand that only respect for truth, respect for human rights actually contribute to social stability, all legal action to disregard legal, cynical man is unwise actions and unwise that any leader who has moral also understood and to avoid unfortunately mistakes like what happened at Vinh Quang, Tien Lang district, Hai Phong city in the past time.
