CWN Editor's Note: Ho Duc Hoa, a Vietnamese Catholic who had been sentenced to 13 years in prison for his work on publicity work on behalf of the Redemptorist order—which was classified as working “to overthrow the people’s government”—has been released and allowed to travel to the US, as a result of pressure from the state department.
