Mr. Benjamin Ismail: Although Vietnam's position on the rankings of the World Press Freedom Index 2013, unchanged compared to the 2011-2012 rankings, the press freedom situation in Vietnam is lousy downhill . Speaking of rankings, in position as Vietnam 172/179 countries assessed, ie the group of 10 countries with the worst press freedom in the world, it is not easy being relegated down further.
VOA: Vietnam's ranking did not change from last year, why the press freedom situation in Vietnam last year were rated as slipping instead remains the same as last year?
Mr. Benjamin Ismail: Due to the location data is a relative ranking. Because our research methods have changed, so can not compare Vietnam's survey scores this year than last year, but the actual situation deteriorated over the previous year. We also update the number of netizens imprisoned in Vietnam for the new information that we can confirm. Vietnam is the second country in the world has the most imprisoned netizens, behind only China. To compare the proportion of the population, Vietnam is the world's biggest prison for netizens. Last year, Vietnam ranked third in the list of countries imprisoned many netizens in the world, after China and Iran, but jumped to second in the past year. At present, Vietnam has 34 netizens imprisoned and at least 12 bloggers, netizens have been sentenced to the sentence up to the maximum 13 years in prison while the number of journalists or netizens imprisoned in years ago was about 19 people. This proves that the suppression of the Communist Party of Vietnam for freedom of the press and freedom of expression of citizens rising.
VOA: What point are considered to be the most notable on the situation of press freedom in Vietnam in the past year, sir?
Director of Asia-Pacific
of RSF Benjamin Ismail organization.
Mr. Benjamin Ismail: There is absolutely no room for any one criticism for the government, the policy of the state, political system, or state officials. The judgment for the bloggers in the group of 14 Protestant and Catholic activists recently actually provoked public opinion. Viet Tan was Vietnam accused overseas terrorists and anyone who has contact with this party were labeled terrorists by Hanoi and accused of "activities aimed at overthrowing the government." Among online dissidents and bloggers jailed blogger Paulus Le Van Son's case. Vietnam accused Son participated in skills training nonviolent struggle organized by Viet Tan in Thailand last July / 2011, but in fact it is training skills independent press by the Reporters Our members Without Borders organization. We can provide evidence, physical evidence to verify this. We hope that Vietnam will cancel the judgment to bloggers Le Van Son, because it is based on false allegations.
