Under his pen name “Dieu Cay,” Nguyen Van Hai blogged about China’s encroachment on Vietnamese islands and criticized the Vietnamese government’s kowtowing to its northern neighbor. For blogging about the repression of peaceful activists and calling for a boycott of the Olympic Torch Relay, he was arrested days before the torch arrived in Saigon. Before his arrest, he was placed under close surveillance and at one point, the police threatened to let Chinese agents kill him. Arbitrarily charged with tax fraud, he was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison in a trial condemned by the international community.
