Norway urges Vietnam to free imprisoned priest
Catholic World News - August 08, 2011
Norway has joined other nations in calling upon Vietnamese authorities to release Father Nguyen Van Ly, a human rights activist who was recently returned to prison.
“We urge the Vietnamese authorities to release Father Ly immediately, and to respect freedom of expression in accordance with Vietnam’s international obligations,” said Gry Larsen, state secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “No one should be prosecuted and imprisoned for exercising the right to freedom of expression.”
