Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out more News Organisation Foreign companies urged to co-operateThere are almost a million blogs in Vietnam in apopulation of 85 million. Unlike China, Vietnamhas not created easily controllable blog platforms.More than 80% of Vietnam’s Internetusers are hooked up to the American companiesGoogle and Yahoo!, thus with websiteshosted abroad, which the authorities can blockbut cannot shut down. In order to keep control,the government has strengthened already existinglaws that ban all forms of online opposition.A decree on Internet management and electroniccommunications that came into force inSeptember 2008 lays down that “opposition tothe Socialist Republic of Vietnam is forbidden”(Article 6).The ministry of information and communicationsis also planning to put forward co-operation proposalsto regulate the content of blogs usingforeign companies’ platforms, under which theywould have to accept to provide informationabout their customers.In fact, a government notice, Circular n°7, cameinto force on 20 January 2009, which is designedto control blogs and their content. It isnow illegal for a blogger to post articlesunder another identity. Blogscan only carry strictly personal information(Article 1) and it is banned to“put out press articles, literary worksor other publications banned by thepress law” (Article 2). Moreover,every six months, at the request ofthe authorities, hosts must make areport on the activities of their customers includingthe number of blogs they run and their statisticsas well as details of blogs that violaterules established by the host (Article 6).For Deputy Minister of Information and Communications,Do Quy Doan, “Bloggers are supervisedto prevent them from entering into illegalityor putting out false information: criticising the fatherland,the work of constructing the country,denigrating and damaging the honour andhuman dignity of an individual, and organisation,dividing the unity of the nation…”.Seven cyber-dissidents behind barsThe Vietnamese authorities have a very intrusivesurveillance system of people who are critical ofthe regime, the most common method beingphone-tapping. But they have also been usingfiltering of emails and Internet accounts.A few days before the Olympic torch was due topass through Ho Chi Minh City, on 19 April2008, the journalist and blogger, Nguyen VanDai, better known as Dieu Cay(http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-Fqy69mcyequwJv.MxrhJO_sXCZbkCw–?cq=1), was arrestedin the city of Dalat, south Vietnam. Five days later he was charged with “tax fraud” andsentenced to two and a half years in prison, on4 December. According to his son, Dieu Cayhad been closely watched since his participationat the start of 2008 in demonstrations inHo Chi Minh City in protest against Chinesepolicy in the Paracels and Spratley archipelago.Police have harassed his family and hisproperty has been seized. Some of his colleagueshave also regularly been threatenedand arrested. One of them, who asked foranonymity, lost his job on government ordersand fears arrest for “revealing informationabroad with the aim of overthrowing the government”for having given interviews to foreignmedia.Since August 2006, eight people have been arrestedand sentenced because of their onlineposts, given Vietnam second place on thepodium of online repression, after China. Oneof them, Huyhn Nguyen Dao, was released on15 February 2009 after serving a two-and-ahalf-year sentence for “propaganda against theregime”. He has said that challenging rules imposedby the Hanoi Communist regime hasbeen pursued above all on the Internet. On hisrelease, he told Reporters Without Bordersabout his concerns about cyber-dissidents of“bloc 8406”, who began a hunger strike on 19February 2009 in protest at the prison conditions.Founded in April 2006, “Bloc 8406” is a prodemocracymovement that launched an onlinepetition in 2006 calling for government reforms.In October, the foreign ministry spokesmancalled this group “illegal” and the security serviceshave relentlessly gone after its mainmovers. In May 2007, six of its members werearrested for “propaganda hostile to the government”because of remarks on the Web. HuynhNguyen Dao, Le Nguyen Sang and NguyenBac Truyen were sentenced to three, four andtwo and a half years in prison and lawyersNguyen Van Dai and Le Thi Cong Nhan, tofour and three years. Tran Quoc Hien, aged42, spokesman for the United Workers-FarmersOrganisation (UWFO), was sentenced tofive years in prison at the end of a four-hourtrial.

But the masteringof the network by pro-democratmilitants disturbs the authoritiesand political content is regularly blocked underthe auspices of the interior ministry.“A blog is a personal news page. If a bloggeruses it for general news like the press, he isbreaking the law and will be punished”, DeputyMinister for Information and Communications,Do Quy Doan, said in February 2009 .Official control of Internet access began on 6June 1996 through the General Direction ofPosts and Telecommunications. Until 19 November1997, the Internet was limited to emailand local data bases.

Five Lakhs on a petitioner who made an incorrect statement in the Writ Petition that merely on the basis of a single case, Gangsters Act had been invoked against him. The Bench of Justice Pankaj Naqvi and Justice Vivek Agarwal was hearing a Writ Petition praying before the Court that impugned orders (directing the attachment of Petitioner’s property) of the District Magistrate, Mau be quashed. Contentions raised before the Court Petitioner’s contention was that vide order dated 21.10.2020, the District Magistrate, Mau had directed for attachment of properties of the petitioner exercising his authority under Section 14(1) of the UP Gangsters and Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act, 1986 whereas vide order dated 29.10.2020, the District Magistrate by revising the order, also attached 300 tons of coal illegally stored in such properties. The Counsel’s for the petitioner submitted that the petitioner was victimized merely on the basis of suspicion. He further submitted that as per gang chart appended along with the FIR, registering Case Crime No. 47 of 2010 under Section 3(1) of the Gangsters Act at Police Station Kotwali, District Mau, there is mention of a solitary case against petitioner. It was submitted that on the basis of the solitary case, case against him was registered under the Gangsters Act, therefore, it was argued that the petitioner was falsely implicated with oblique motive. On the other hand, the AGA submitted that petitioner’s contention was factually incorrect and the petitioner cleverly suppressed material information from the main body of the writ petition. AGA submitted that there is long history of the petitioner’s involvement in criminal cases and that he is habitually involved in several criminal matters and these materials have been taken into consideration by the District Magistrate. It was contended that arbitrarily petitioner mentioned that he was involved only in one case namely Case Crime No. 1866 of 2009 which is factually incorrect and that amounts to suppression of material information from this Court. Court’s observation The Court was ‘amazed’ that petitioner did not mention the fact that he had history of other criminal cases to his credit. Further, the Court said, “We are thus of the considered view that the omission was intentional and deliberate with a view to hoodwink the court for ulterior motives which cannot go unpunished. It is apparent that petitioner is guilty of suppressing material facts.” The Court also said, “It is also apparent that petitioner has made an incorrect statement in the writ petition that merely on the basis of solitary case, Gangsters Act has been invoked against him. In fact, petitioner’s case is squarely covered by Clause i, ii and XXV of Section 2(1) (b) of the Gangsters Act, and therefore there is no ground to quash the impugned orders.” Further, for misrepresenting the facts before the Court, the Court was of the view that heavy cost was needed to be imposed on the petitioner as “he did not approach the court with clean hands to seek equitable relief in the form of issuance of either writ of certiorari or writ of mandamus.” Therefore, the Court dismissed the writ petition while imposing a cost of Rs. 5,00,000/- (Rupees Five Lakhs) on the petitioner. The cost has been directed to be deposited in the High Court Legal Services Authority within 30 days from the date of the Order. Case Title – Umesh Singh v. State of U.P. and another [Criminal Misc.

One of the three students found by police swimming naked in Castle Mill Stream last week has spoken out against the dangers of binge drinking.Joe Wellington, a second year physicist at LMH, writes on page 11 of this week’s Cherwell, “Whilst trapped under the bridge, with my life hanging in the balance, I experienced life changing thoughts. Only then, when I was close to death, did I realise how utterly stupid everything I had done in the last few hours had been.”Last week it was reported that police had rescued three LMH students from dangerously fast-flowing waters near Hythe Bridge street. One of the students, Joe Wellington, initially refused to be rescued and swam away from the police. He was swept downstream under two bridges and into a weir, from where he finally climbed to safety.PC Philips, one of the policeman involved, said at the time that Wellington was lucky to survive. “Luckily he managed to come through the weir with only cuts and bruises but, if the weir had been locked, he would have hit it at speed and almost certainly been killed,” he said.Speaking exclusively to Cherwell Wellington said, “It was unbelievably stupid – I was definitely in danger. I went back to the weir the other day and the river is ridiculously fast.“Drunken fun is drunken fun but when you start putting your life at risk it stops being fun and becomes ridiculous,” he added.The Oxford Mail attacked the three students, running the headline “You Idiots” on its front page. Wellington describes this treatment as deserved, saying, “I feel quite ashamed. I’m frustrated that I did it but you can’t blame the papers.“I’m disappointed that I wasted a substantial amount of the emergency services’ time,” he added.He confirmed that the three students will be doing community service to make up for the trouble caused. “I am going to do quite a lot of community service: some in College, some in town.We’re thinking of volunteering with St John’s Ambulance or the Fire Service. It’s the right thing for me to give back something to the community.”He claimed he wanted to speak publicly about the incident because it had made him realise the dangers of binge drinking.He concluded, “This has definitely changed the way I feel about alcohol – if I hadn’t been completely off my face I wouldn’t have done it. I take complete responsibility but I think alcohol is more dangerous than people give it credit for.”
