Read Christians Suffer as Vietnam Crackdowns on Freedom of Expression, a special report by ICC at persecution.org.
"One of the few remaining communist countries in the world, Vietnam is aggressively trying to stifle the cry of its people for increased human rights and freedoms, consequently furthering the persecution of Christians. Catholic activists are being charged with imprisonment and suspensions. They are accused of crimes they do not commit. The activists are defending their faith, but the officials exaggerate the truth to be able to arrest them. Religion is regulated in Vietnam and the arrests are becoming more frequent."
