                        (Ministry of Police Number 4 Yet Kieu HN)

We are:
Nguyen Tri Dung, born in 1986, MLS ID: 0 2 4 2 0 8 4 9 3
 is Same with Duong Thi Tan my mother, Born: 1958 ID Number: 0 2 3 4 1 3 2 5 2

Resident: 57/31 Pham Ngoc Thach Ward 6 District 3 Ho Chi Minh City

Is relatives of prisoner Nguyen Van Hai Born in 1952 is now a prisoner in prison K1 Nghe An, Thanh Chuong number 6 on charges of "propaganda against the state" Article 88 of the penal code.

At 1: 30 pm July 16, 2013, we have been in camp port 6 (Hanh Lam commune. Thanh Chuong district, Nghe An) Lieutenant Colonel Pham Quang Thao who was on duty in port K1 removed his badges and request " the family must be waited until time to work is at 2 o'clock" but after 2 o'clock, this staff continues to require waiting outside for more than 4 :10 pm, there are many people who wear uniformed but completely no name table  request directly the family be inside for talking. An oldest person of group in the rank of lieutenant colonel started saying "today not allow for visitation because he,  Hai was disciplined" when we asked, the staff is very confused and replied "... recently.... because he, Hai cause disorderly in detention room, "but after a time, this person said" a disciplined last week was specific that I do not know. " When the family in the requirement the name table, this official proved to be very uncomfortable and then he calling himself is Lieutenant Colonel Ngo Tri Thao.

Even so confused, we were forced to return after deposit and money to Mr. Nguyen Van Hai. With these questions as follows:

- Working style nameless mystery, is not any proof for disciplining Mr. Hai.

- The official who brought in Lieutenant Colonel in authorities but also confusing in both the date month and be nervous about the cause of discipline Mr.Hai.

- Nguyen Van Hai The precedent has not caused any trouble in prison in nearly 10 prisons he was from 2008 to present.

July 17, 2013 when we just came in the Saigon has received reports from people who in the same prison with Nguyen Van Hai,is Mr. Nguyen Xuan Nghia  that Hai, he had been fasting for 25 days.

Thus, because of the mistakes of the behavior, the obscure papers show that Hai had been disciplined for what specific problems and confusion when answering from the reception staff about the time to start of discipline Mr. Hai and also  when family to be allowed for visit and meeting. We are fully confident that Mr. Hai is on hunger strike because he was violated a serious interest in the prison No 6  at K1 Thanh Chuong  Nghe An.

But instead inform the specific situation for the family, enabling families to meet him to understand the reason why and removing hunger strike has lasted and the life-threatening stage. Then the person self-proclaimed Lieutenant Colonel Ngo Tri Thao with 5 other unnamed officials accompanying jointly hide and excuse "discipline" in order to avoid having to visit the family approach.

In addition to deliberately cause the loss of time, health and economic, to staging to deprive presents of relatives who visiting. Hiding a person who had hunger strike for many days and health status in danger is an immoral job and completely purposes to hide the reason that Mr. Hai hunger strike despite it could lead him to the dead.

My family made this letter today calling for the help and intervention of emergency first because the lives of Mr. Hai, then is to clarify the causes of hunger strike for long day of Mr. Hai and despite the danger to his life, finally to put the officers lack ethics and human nature before the light of the law.
