Hanoi archdiocese protests police raid on parish

Catholic World News - November 07, 2011

The Hanoi archdiocese has issued a protest against a violent police assault on a Redemptorist monastery and the associated parish.

Hundreds of police officers and soldiers rushed into the courtyard of the parish at Thai Ha on November 3, hurling stones and insults and smashing the front door of the monastery, archdiocesan officials reported. The raid was apparently an escalation of a long-running dispute over parish property that the state has sought to expropriate.
