This briefing paper documents intimidation and harassment against Catholics in Hanoi. After a violent crackdown in September 2008 on peaceful mass protests in Ha Noi, the Vietnamese authorities continue to threaten and otherwise intimidate Catholics who have supported for the church’s claims in a land dispute. Amnesty International calls on the Vietnamese government to uphold the rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and freedom of religion.
