Amnesty International is calling for all prisoners of conscience to be included in a major amnesty for prisoners, authorized by Viet Nam’s President to mark National Day on 2 September 2010. At the same time, the authorities should make a commitment to repeal or amend vaguely worded legislation which criminalizes peaceful dissent, and to end the harassment and imprisonment of individuals for exercising their rights to freedom of expression, association and opinion.
