Trong thư phúc đáp ngài Ngoại trưởng Canada John Baird, văn phòng chúng tôi đặc biệt lưu ý Canada cần phải có hành động cụ thể và tiến bộ để chính phủ Việt Nam cần sớm nhận thức rằng họ không thể mong đợi tận hưởng đầy đủ các quyền lợi về thương mại và quan hệ đối tác chính trị, ngoại giao với Canada cho đến khi những cải cách tự do, dân chủ cần thiết đã thực sự diễn ra.

Nhân tiện, văn phòng chúng tôi cũng gửi đính kèm ngài Ngoại trưởng một danh sách (tuy chưa đầy đủ lắm) các tù nhân chính trị, tôn giáo và tù nhân lương tâm ở Việt Nam mà văn phòng chúng tôi đã nhận được từ một số cá nhân, tổ chức đấu tranh cho Nhân Quyền Việt Nam trong và ngoài nước.

RE: In response to your correspondence on February 16, 2012

Dear Minister John Baird,

I would like to first thank you for your reply. It is important that Canada remains active in promoting values inherent and sacred to Canadians wherever we visit. Democracy, human rights, and the rule of law must prevail, if only because they are true and just.

Yet, as we, alone or in conjunction with the “Group of Four”, Canada , together with the embassies of Norway , New Zealand and Switzerland in Hanoi , continue to raise our concerns with Vietnam , we should also endeavour to do more.

While some progress has been made, the Vietnamese government has also adapted to the increased scrutiny. Rather than imprisoning dissidents (for the most part as the cases of Father Nguyen Van Ly, Dr. Cu Huy Ha Vu, Lawyer Le Cong Dinh, Messrs. Nguyen Tien Trung and Tran Huynh Duy Thuc), which will only attract unwanted attention from human rights watchdogs, the government has instead imposed house arrests (Dr. Nguyen Dan Que), large administrative fines (Mr. Huynh Ngoc Tuan’s family) or sent to the drug rehabilitation center (Mrs. Bui Thi Minh Hang).

Such a response may not seem deplorable at a glance, but when digging deeper, we find that the fines dealt in the case of Mr. Huynh Ngoc Tuan’s family are ridiculous as they are substantial. Fines are in excess of what the average citizen can afford. These fines are not meant to restrict the real criminals, who are already behind bars, but to suppress native democratic and human rights activists.

What, then, can Canada do in addressing this problem? Much in the same way Canada has addressed the imprisonment of human rights and democratic activists, we should speak out against these unjustifiable when they occur. We must press the Vietnamese government to acknowledge that these fines, and the imprisonment of activists, are not befitting a nation seeking to improve their image on the world stage.

Without concrete action and progress, the Vietnamese government will continue to be regarded as a nation unwilling to change for the benefit of its people. To that end, it must be impressed upon said rulers that they cannot expect to enjoy the full benefits of trade and partnership with Canada until necessary reforms have taken place.

Change in Vietnam will undoubtedly be a long and arduous process. It is my hope that Canada remains the most vocal proponent for democracy, human rights, and the rule of law, not only in Vietnam but wherever change is required. Our core values have been the foundation of a stable, peaceful, and open society. We should work to respectfully share our beliefs with others.

Attached please find a recent updated non-exhaustive list of prisoners of conscience and political prisoners in Vietnam for your information.

Again, I wish to thank you for your response and attention to this matter, and look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Sincerely,

Khanh VU DUC, LL.L., LL.B., MPA
