Open letter to World Human Rights Organizations

To whom it may concern

Dear Sirs,

My name is Tran Van Huynh , 75 years old , Vietnamese citizen, living in Ho Chi Minh City.

By this open letter, I would like to draw your attention to what has been done with WGAD regarding the case of my son named Tran Huynh Duy Thuc (THDT for short) falsely accused and arbitrarily sentenced to 16 years in prison and 5 years probation. Here below are the complaints made by myself and other notable persons or organizations:

1. On January 11, 2012, I myself, as father of THDT, sent a Complaint to WGAD c/o UNHCHR Office in Geneva, asking them to take action for my son according the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Please refer to the related attachments here below for more information in detail.

2. Also on January 11, 2012, the Letter to WGAD from Dr. Nguyen Thanh Giang in Geophysics, a very well – known and notable democracy activist in VN, was addressed to the UN / HCHR Office in Geneva as a complaint for THDT. Just nearly 2 weeks before that, on November 29, 2011 he posted a respectable article entitled “Star locked in jail” creating a spectacular effect in the public opinion in Viet Nam.
Please refer to the related documents attached hereunder  for more information in detail.

3. More importantly is the striking appeal to the public “Let’s raise our voice in favor of THDT and those who have involved themselves in acting for the country and the people” recently launched by DAN LAM BAO, a very famous and prestigious social bookmark in VN, suggesting that, if possible, everybody in the community should send a similar Complaint to WDAG for THDT or for any other democracy fighter arbitrarily detained. The more participants to this democratic campaign the better.
Please refer to the related attached hereunder for further information.

4. Not long before proceeding to WGAD to look for support, on 29/11/2011, after thinking carefully, I decided to send a “Letter to President Barrack Hussein Obama”, as my international efforts to save my son, hoping that it may be a more effective approach. For your reference, please click here.

Last but not least, I also would like to suggest WGAD to have closer and deeper concern to my son THDT as well as his friends Le Thang Long, Le Cong Dinh and Nguyen Tien Trung who were arbitrarily convicted together in the same law case, and to act accordingly in conformity with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Thank you very much for your consideration and valuable assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Tran Van Huynh

Let’s raise our voice in favor of Tran Huynh Duy Thuc and those who have  involved themselves in acting for the country and the people

Dear friends,

After the article “Starlocked in jail”(i.e.”Ngôi sao bị nhốtin Vietnamese) by Dr Nguyen Thanh Giang and many other articles related to Tran Huynh Duy Thuc posted on Danlambao and many other journals, there are a lot of comments supporting him and  showing heartbreak for the present circumstances which he endured. There are also some comments suggesting Danlambao or individuals to make a joint petition calling for people to sign together to request freedom for Thức.

After Danlambao posted 2 introductory articles about the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) of the United Nations (i.e.Giới thiệu Nhóm Công tác về Cầm tù Tùy tiện (WGAD) in vietnamese) which is allowed to receive complaints from any individual from anywhere in the world, Danlambao has received a copy of the complaint of Thức’s father requesting that U.N. organization to consider the case of THDT. Thức’ father has also officially submitted his complaints for his son to WGAD.

Readers can consult the content of these two complaints hereunder to be able to apply the same for the other cases that should be complained.

Danlambao also hope you, dear readers, to take a few minutes to write and send an email to: wgad@ohchr.org: Working Group on Arbitrary Detention for (WGAD) suggesting they consider it in” emergency action procedures ” for the case of Tran Huynh Duy Thuc arbitrarily deprived of his freedom and many other cases that have happened and are happening in our country (see sample letter in the following section).

Please click here  to view the content in English and Vietnamese the letter of Uncle Trần Văn Huỳnh,Thức’s father,officially asking WGAD intervention for his son , including the Model Questionaire translated into Vietnamese.

Hereunder is the content of Dr. Nguyen Thanh Giang’s complaint and request for THDT:

(Please refer to the related attached here above for this content in detail)

Dear friends,

Yes, it’s really very simple. Just a few minutes for us to send 1 email expressing our views suggesting the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention of United Nations (WGAD) to show    serious concern about a talent of the country. That doesn’t just help THDT and those who are unjustly put in jail but Danlambao are also sure that it will bring good things for all of us and for the country as well. You just need to write a short few lines about your viewpoints with regard to the hearing of the case for THDThuc,LTLong,LCDinh and NTTrung  or for other people in  other cases. Simultaneously, you propose WGAD of the United Nations to pay special attention to and urgently take these cases into consideration. Note that your identity will be kept confidential. The WGAD are committed not to disclose it at all.

For those readers who want to  give a hand for this but who are too busy or not proficient in English, Danlambao have prepared  the following existing content you can use optionally at your discretion .

Mail subject
: Imprisonment of Tran Huynh Duy Thuc – a case of arbitrary detention.
Attention to:
Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD)

I would like to ask your particular concern and launching an urgent appeal on the case of arbitrary deprivation of freedom of Mr. Tran Huynh Duy Thuc in Vietnam. He is a talent of the country. I believe that he is not guilty with what he has done and been indicted, and that he deserves being credited with what he has striven for human rights, freedom, democracy and the peace of the world. So do a lot of many other Vietnamese.

Thank you very much and best regards.
