Canadian Law Association calling for the release of Le Quoc Quan



Canadian Law Association early last February had written to express deep concern about the situation in Vietnam where the lawyers themselves active advocate for the respect of Human Rights in Vietnam became the target under threat from the government including the Human rights lawyer Le Quoc Quan who was arrested arbitrarily in December last year and called on the Vietnamese communist authorities to release immediately for he was in a state of mental and physical integrity. Above dynamics of the Canadian Association of Law to create opportunities for more attention from the International Community for case of Human Rights lawyer Le Quoc Quan particular and for the state threatened, arrested arbitrarily to Democracy and Human Rights activists in Vietnam in general.

For years, before the state of the Global Internet technology boom, the Vietnamese communist state government feel insecure especially since appeared many comments critical of the government related to the evils involved corruption and other activities in violation of the Vietnamese government regarding human rights, the Human Rights and Democracy Activist include components such as: dissident lawyer, lawyers, human rights defenders, the journalist, writer and blogger component, the characters are seen as potential threats to power and leadership roles of the government, has obviously become the focal point of harassment, intimidation, arrested persecuted and imprisoned the wrong way from the communist government of Vietnam.

To effectively control and suppress voices of dissent in the country, the Vietnamese communist authorities did not hesitate to turn every vile tactics including arbitrary arrest and accused of being imposed as tax evasion, disturbing public order, opposing duty ...... and a series of charges were blatantly slander others have been applied in the past administration. Besides, the Vietnamese communist authorities also apply vague about in the Criminal Code as in Article 88 (propaganda against the regime) Article 79 (Conspiracy to overthrow the government) or 258 ( advantage of Freedom and Democracy works to harm the interests of the State) ....... as tools to imprison, punish and suppress any voice of dissent with the government.

We need to call attention and more effort from the International Community in creating pressure on the communist government of Vietnam to immediately stop all acts of repression, harassment, threats , arrested and detained arbitrarily and wrong for peaceful dissent voices in the country, as well as fully comply with proper and full implementation of the commitments of the Government of Vietnam with international for relevant human rights. Besides a need consensus from all classes of people to speak out against human rights abuses actions of the Vietnamese government in order to bring the sense of right and responsibility for the group leader Party and government today. Which enables them to see the legitimate aspirations of the people and the practical benefits of the respect for Human Rights and Democratic expansion in Vietnam.
