Help Free Prisoner of Conscience Subject to Ill-Treatment (Viet Nam: UA 196/16)
Trần Huỳnh Duy Thức, a human rights defender and prisoner of conscience, serving a 16-year sentence has been transferred to a remote prison in northern Viet Nam. This is more than a full day’s drive from his family home. He is being subjected to ill-treatment treatment for his refusal to carry out prison labour, which violates the international prohibition on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.
