Viet Nam: Open Letter to the President of the National Assembly on Vietnam’s draft Law on Belief and Religion

, N° d'index: ASA 41/4950/2016

Viet Nam’s draft Law on Belief and Religion undermines basic guarantees of the right to freedom of religion or belief by onerous registration requirements and excessive state interference in religious organizations’ internal affairs. This joint Open Letter from civil society organizations calls for the draft Law to be revised, in consultation with religious community representatives, including those of non-recognized religious communities, and experts in international human rights law, to ensure that the law protects the right to freedom of religion or belief in line with article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
