Vietnam jails three more activists in crackdown on Facebook posts

Vietnam jails 3 more for anti-government posts

HANOI • Vietnam has jailed three more people for anti-government posts on social media platform Facebook deemed to defame the ruling Vietnamese Communist Party, state media and police said yesterday, bringing the total imprisoned this month to five.

Pham Van Diep, a 54-year-old activist, was jailed for nine years for spreading "distorted information defaming the Communist Party and the Vietnamese government". Separately, a court in the southern province of Dong Nai jailed a brother and sister for a total of 14 years on similar charges.

Bad business. I wonder what he was saying about the leadership?

Was he protesting the poverty forced on the country by the US's treatment of it after the War of Liberation?

Or was he protesting the suspicious wealth of the leadership after it succumbed to the demands of the US for the payment of debts that the puppet Saigon government left it?

As I've always said FACEBOOK has blood on their hands!

And they are lying about it covering themselves up saying that they protect users.

Sheryl Sandberg: Facebook 'made big mistakes' on protecting user data

 PBS NewsHour 5 Apr 2018

Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg apologized Thursday for the social media giant’s data breach and admitted the company failed to do enough to protect the data of tens of millions of its users. In an interview with Judy Woodruff, Sandberg acknowledged the company “under-invested” in the safety and security of user data and said Facebook is now working to rectify that.

"CLIMATE OF FEAR"

In the other cases this month, a music teacher was jailed for 11 years on Nov. 15 over anti-state posts on Facebook and a 38-year-old man was jailed for broadcasts of 33 live video sessions.

The broadcasts aimed to "encourage people to participate in protests during national holidays", a court said.

Late last month, a 54-year-old architect was jailed for a year over the same charge.

Widely used in Vietnam, Facebook serves as the main platform both for e-commerce and the expression of political dissent. In May Facebook said it had increased more than sixfold the content in Vietnam to which it restricted access in the last half of 2018.

Amnesty and New York-based Human Rights Watch have decried curbs on freedom of expression that leave people facing arrest and jail for voicing their opinion, and have also urged Hanoi to halt a crackdown on an independent publisher.

"This crackdown has further exacerbated the prevailing climate of fear in Vietnam," the rights groups said in a joint statement on Wednesday.
