Posted: 2/27/2013 | By: Voice of America
A Vietnamese journalist working for a state-run newspaper has been fired
and threatened with prosecution after criticizing a Communist Party
leader on his personal website.
Nguyen Dac Kien was let go by the official Family and Society
newspaper on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after writing a blog post that
took issue with a speech by General-Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.
