There are increasing fears for the health of prisoner of conscience Trần Thị Thúy, who continues to be denied medical treatment, despite repeated requests to the Vietnamese authorities. She has been diagnosed with a tumour on her uterus and is in severe pain, unable to walk without assistance. She has been told she will not receive treatment unless she “confesses” to the crimes she was convicted of.
