Images of hundreds and thousands of Cambodian down the street for demonstrations to require the State government of Cambodia and Cambodian Royal amnesty for political prisoners and prisoners of human rights, images of Cambodian police pushed and stop prevent people from marching in the streets even in the orderly and peaceful, as well as the answering way of Mr. Tith Sothea, advisor to Prime Minister Hun Sen before the public and the press that: "According to the report Ministry of Interior of Cambodia, Cambodia does not have any political prisoners, the prisoners today are those who violate the law and the Court sentenced correctly the true crime .... .. " Oh! why, the condition of the people and government behavior in the communist nations, or the countries were sponsored or supported by communist as well as the countries are having national policies and guidelines authoritarian dictatorship is similar like that.
Evident as in Vietnam, the people who were arrested and imprisoned illegally by government just for their expression of lawful freedom of speech, expressed their patriotism against the aggressor as case of Father Nguyen Van Ly, lawyer Cu Huy Ha Vu, dissident teacher Dinh Dang Dinh, 17 young Catholic youths in the Diocese of Vinh, bloggers Dieu Cay, bloggers Ta Phong Tan and .....the most recent illegal abduction female young patriotic students Nguyen Phuong Uyen University of Industry Food TP. Ho Chi Minh and unfair trial filled with two patriotic musicians is Viet Khang and Tran Vu Anh Binh ... along with hundreds and thousands of other political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, if not look them as political prisoners, is look them as what kind of prisoner? is the criminal offence? but they did not murder robbery, where corruption and degeneration as the communist government officials present, not also lewd and degenerate as the police of Tien Lang District, sergeant Vu Van Quynh who current was denounced to use of force to commit his debauched immoral acts with a series of female students.

However, despite such clear but the Communist Party and the State government of Vietnam as well as other communist countries such as Cambodia today, before international and public opinion in the country still has calmly announced similar as: "Our country has no political prisoners ..." What makes them to become so brazen and shameless like that? Why dare arrest and detention of political prisoners, but did not dare to admit to people in the country and the world? Although it sounds strange but in fact there's nothing confusing. Because themselves always confirm as a jurisdiction state, with a fair and civilized society, as well as all people are treated equally with each other, common inherited the basic human freedom that law and the constitution of Vietnam has defined. Therefore, when the words and actions do not go together, the Party and the Vietnamese communist authorities tried to cover up their misconduct is of course not difficult to understand. However, whether to recognize or not recognize, is with the opinion in the country or to the International Community, the people who was arrested by the communist authorities and imprisoned wrong in communist countries generally and in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in particularly, as the above cases are quite certainly political prisoners and prisoners of conscience no one can deny. And before the trend of the current global democratization, both Vietnam and other communist countries in the world have the responsibility and obligation to implement fully their true commitment to the basic Rights of people. The first thing that must be done is immediately release all prisoners of conscience and political prisoners that they were illegally detained for years.
