Vietnam accused of human rights abuses #humanrightsday

HANOI - HUMAN Rights Watch is calling on the United States to keep Vietnam on a list of the world's worst abusers of religious freedom, accusing it of continuously harassing some groups trying to worship peacefully. The US-based group singled Vietnam out in a statement on Tuesday, a day after releasing its annual global report on human rights. It says the Communist government continues to crackdown on religious groups not recognised by Hanoi. Several religious leaders, including pro-democracy dissident Catholic priest Thadeus Nguyen Van Ly, continue to be detained by police. Hanoi maintains only lawbreakers are jailed. Vietnam was added last year to the US government's list of countries of particular concern for denying religious freedom. Human Rights Watch wants the designation to be extended this year. -- AP
