Status: Under Arrest
Arrested on 08 Aug 2012

According to Reporters Without Borders, blogger Dinh Dang Dinh was sentenced on August 8, 2012 to six years in prison on charges of disseminating anti-government propaganda. His blog posts criticized the communist party and promoted democracy.

"The same charges keep on being brought against Vietnam’s bloggers," Reporters Without Borders said. "Article 88 of the criminal code has again been used to silence criticism of the government. The summary nature of these proceedings does not bode well for other bloggers currently being tried. We urge the courts to respect Dinh’s right to due process and to overturn this unjust conviction on appeal."

Dinh pleaded not guilty, but was convicted under Article 88-1(c) of Vietnam's criminal code.
