On day 30 of hunger strike, Dieu Cay’s life is in imminent danger

< A >
Danlambao - This morning, July 22, 2013, Mrs. Duong Thi Tan and her son, Mr. Nguyen Tri Dung, are going to the People's Procuracy of Nghe An Province to submit an emergency request and to make an inquiry about the recent complaint of blogger Dieu Cay – Nguyen Van Hai.

All week long, Mrs. Nguyen and their children have been very worried about the life of the blogger that they feel as if they have been sitting on a hot stove. And their nerves are on edge with each passing hour. Dieu Cay has been on hunger strike for 30 consecutive days in solitary confinement. As of today, July 22, there is no indication that Dieu Cay suspends the hunger strike. His life is in imminent danger now.

Well known for his steadfast nature, Dieu Cay will fight to the death for justice. Meanwhile, prison officials at No. 6 Prison remain unresponsive to Dieu Cay’s complaint but continue to use all tricks to force him to sign a “confession” document.

Facing this extremely urgent situation, Mrs. Duong Thi Tan and her family will fight tirelessly to request the People's Procuracy ofNghe An Province to intervene and resolve the matter quickly because the life of blogger Dieu Cay is in imminent danger.

At the meeting on July 20, a prison police officer, captain Nguyen Van Dieu, confirmed with the family: "We have forwarded the complaint of Mr. Hai to the the People's Procuracy.” However, his compliant so far has not been answered. Possibly, prison police has concealed prisoners’ complaints in order to cover up their wrong doings.

Today, it marks the 30th day of Dieu Cay’s hunger strike. It is also the time for the delegation of Vietnam President Truong Tan Sang to finalize the preparation for the trip to America. This is the main reason why prison police want to force Dieu Cay to plead guilty in order to deceive international opinion.

"Do not forget to blogger Dieu Cay" was the call of President Obama in his speech on World Press Freedom Day 2012. President Truong Tan Sang will meet with President Obama during his visit to the United States from July 24-26, 2013.

The use of brutal disciplinary punishment in solitary confinement to force Dieu Cay to plead guilty implies there is an involvement from the highest level within the ranks of the communist elites and the evil prison guards at the notorious No. 6 Prison of the Ministry of Public Security carry out that order.

Refusing to be a political tool for the communist regime to make bargain, blogger Dieu Cay has resorted to the last defense line of his fight for justice in the form of hunger strike.

The prison transfer of Dieu Cay from Xuan Loc Prison in Dong Nai Province to No. 6 Prison in Nghe An Province reveals a sinister plot planned in advance. They used that trick to isolate him from his family and to allow prison police to carry out the evil orders without anyone knowing.

Without the quick thought and courageous action of writer Nguyen Xuan Nghia to inform the news of Dieu cay’s hunger strike to his family, maybe we can hardly anticipate any terrible things will happen to Dieu Cay. Reportedly, prison police is punishing writer Nguyen Xuan Nghia with the same form of punishment for his selfless action.

As a reminder, in February and March 2012, Dieu Cay had also gone on a hunger strike for 28 days in B14 Prison of the Ministry of Public Security to protest against the communist prison system. As a result, he was hospitalized in a coma. It took 4 days for him to regain consciousness after being treated at the 30/4 Hospital, which is run by the Ministry of Public Security. Then, police had completely concealed the incident and did not notify the family.

This time, Dieu Cay has reached the 30th day of hunger strike, passing the threshold limit of 28 days he made last year. His life now is in imminent danger, and he may only have hours left to live.

No. 6 Prison is in the mountainous district of Thanh Chuong, Nghe An Province. The roads are difficult to travel. If the worst happens, it takes two hours by road to get to an emergency room of the nearest hospital from the prison.
