Vietnamese legal agencies on January 30 decided to expel Nguyen Quoc
Quan from the country, realising the Vietnamese State’s humanity
Quan, of the US nationality, was born in
Hanoi on November 20, 1953, and is a member of the reactionary
organisation in exile Viet Tan.
On April 17 last
year, the Investigation Security Agency under the Ministry of Public
Security arrested Quan in Ho Chi Minh City on a charge of carrying
out activities aimed at overthrowing the people’s administration under
Article 79 of Vietnam’s Penal Code.
The agency also seized many documents reflecting his illegal activities.
Quan pleaded guilty and begged for clemency so he could return to the US and reunite with his family.-VNA
