Vietnam: Truong Quoc Huy : [Global letter-writing marathon 2006]
Prisoner of conscience Truong Quoc Huy was arrested on 18 August 2006 whilst using chatroom facilities at an internet café in Ho Chi Minh City. Since his arrest his whereabouts remain unknown. He has reportedly been charged under Article 88 of the Criminal Code for "conducting propaganda against the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam" which carries a sentence of up to 20 years' imprisonment. Amnesty International believes that Truong Quoc Huy is a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression.
