The human rights situation in the world in 2011
Hoa Ai, RFA reporter
Amnesty International has released its 2012 report reviews the status of national human rights abuses around the world.
Head of Amnesty International
in the United States
Some positive developments
The report's 400 pages in 2012 Amnesty International stating the human rights situation of 155 countries in the world was announced on 23/05. In this report shows the status of human rights violations of the Vietnam government worse than the previous year.
Some changes are positive for the human rights situation in the past year has been the decision of the Burmese civil authorities to release 650 political prisoners and allow the opposition party of Aung San Suu Kyi as candidates. This is considered a positive result in the process of democracy in this country. Besides the movement of people in the Middle East, North Africa on free speech, democracy is a positive change drastically.
However, dark patches in the 2012 report of Amnesty International sets forth the leaders in the Asia-Pacific region has not met the challenges of democratic trends in the world today. Specifically listed in the report include conflict in Afghanistan and Thailand, discrimination of ethnic minorities in China, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Pakistan. Justice for those detained in the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia has not yet been clarified, investigating the armed conflict in Sri Lanka previously has not met the requirements ....
China uses all security forces to suppress dissent. North Korea is not showing signs of improving the situation of human rights violations seriously.
Human rights worsened VN
In Southeast Asia, Vietnam is a country with the human rights situation was the worst violations.
Rupert Abbott, Special Rapporteur Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam by Amnesty International raised after his review of recently published reports:
"Vietnam is a country of human rights violations worst in Southeast Asia today. Amnesty International does not use comparisons but the government of Vietnam should be cautious with this comment in the international arena. I hope that people will make the change leaders and Vietnam will also have to respect human rights in their countries. "
Rupert Abbott said Vietnam has many political prisoners known as prisoners of conscience. So Amnesty International to confirm the problem can not ignore human rights in Vietnam, but instead to call for world attention and pressure until Vietnam respect human rights, release all prisoners of conscience, treating people kindly. Basically this serves the interests of the people that the government of Vietnam needs to perform.
In reporting on the human rights situation in Vietnam in 2012, Amnesty International continues to clearly state the harsh suppression of dissent, those who fight peacefully, serious restrictions on free speech, freedom of religion. The typical case is referred to as Cu Huy Ha Vu lawyer, writer Tran Khai Thanh Thuy, Father Nguyen Van Ly and lawyers Nguyen Van Dai, Nguyen Hoang Hai News journalist blogger "Dieu Cay", the victims Montagnards, members of the Hoa Hao Buddhist Church, Nguyen Van Lia and Tran Hoai An, the Falun Gong, many petitioners in the litigation and enforcement of land and those who called for reform or object on land and environmental labor rights ... are arrested and imprisoned.
As reported by the media that 23 people were sentenced to death but the actual number is believed to be higher. Amnesty International criticized the government of Vietnam using vague provisions of the Criminal Code in 1999, especially Article 79 is "conspiracy to overthrow the government" and 88 "propaganda against the countries "captivity to arrest people once they voiced requires fundamental freedoms such as freedom of speech, free press, freedom of association, freedom of expression.
The report also highlighted the Hanoi government tried to stop people using the internet, freedom of information in many different forms. Social networks like Facebook, Twitter was closed and the right to request the internet café provides police information to access the banned websites.
Rupert Abbott Special Rapporteur for the report in 2012 that showed that in the past year in the Middle East, North Africa is a huge change. The people in that fight by speaking out and take action to require their own power base and they were very successful. Mr. Rupert for the Vietnam government should consider a smart way to see these developments in the world. He said:
"At the House Committee Tom Lantos Human Rights, in the hearing on human rights in Vietnam in DC, the situation is growing worse. This is a very serious problem affecting the prestige of Vietnam in the world. Vietnam wants better relations with the United States and Europe in the commercial traffic as well as thanks to this relationship than ever before to balance the danger of encroachment by the Chinese territory of Vietnam, so , to strengthen relations with the United States and Europe, Vietnam needs to be smarter than to stop, and to improve respect for human rights. Therefore, we request that Vietnam must meet this requirement. "
Amnesty International calls on world countries when trade negotiations with Vietnam should take human rights issues on the agenda. If the government of Vietnam would like to have more rights than as a member of the international community, the national leaders to respect human rights, respect for religious freedom and free speech.
