Arrested between 27 Aug 2009 and 06 Sep 2009
On August 27, 2009, police in Vietnam arrested political blogger Bui Thanh Hieu, also known by his blogger name, Nguoi Buon Gio, which means "Wind Trader." The blogger's writings criticized territorial claims within China, as well as Vietnam's handling of land disputes with the Catholic church. Hieu's house was searched following his arrest, and his computers and other personal belongings confiscated.
Vietnamese authorities have released blogger Bui Thanh Hieu more than a week after detaining him for questioning about postings critical of the Communist government’s handling of relations with China. He said that police told him they had evidence that he had violated Article 258 of Vietnam’s penal code, which prohibits “abusing freedom and democracy to infringe on the interests of the state.”
