1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Quash Ho Duy Hai’s conviction and death sentence, which resulted from proceedings that did not meet international standards for a fair trial and which he could not appeal to the Supreme People’s Court;
  • Ensure that he is protected from torture and other ill-treatment and is allowed frequent and regular access to his family, his lawyer and adequate medical care and is granted a fair retrial without resort to the death penalty;
  • Immediately establish a moratorium on all executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty, in line with six UN General Assembly resolutions adopted since 2007.
