Amnesty International criticizes Vietnam in annual report

In its annual report on worldwide human rights conditions, Amnesty International criticized Vietnam for continued tight controls over freedom of expression and association, arrests of dissidents, unfair political trials and legislation, persecution of ethnic minorities, and the continued use of the death penalty. It highlighted the cases of individuals associated with Bloc 8406, an organization founded to promote democracy and human rights in Vietnam, which suffered from a crackdown launched after the APEC meeting in Hanoi in November 2006.
