The Vietnamese government must immediately and unconditionally release human rights lawyer and blogger Nguyen Van Dai, L4L and other organizations said today. Nguyen Van Dai has been arbitrarily detained for exactly one year, without access to legal representation or any word of an upcoming trial.

Nguyen Van Dai was arrested on December 16, 2015, charged with “conducting propaganda against the State” under Article 88 of the Vietnamese Penal Code. Vietnamese authorities continue to remain silent regarding the investigation process, with no sign of his trial. Furthermore, neither his wife nor his lawyers have been granted visitation rights.

Nguyen Van Dai was stopped by police on the day of his arrest while on his way to meet with the European Union delegation participating in the bilateral human rights dialogue with Hanoi. His colleague Le Thu Ha was also arrested at the same time under the same charge and has been held incommunicado since.
