Pursuant to the investigative results;

Establishes the facts of the case as follows:

In around 2010, Đinh Nhật Uy had his friend create a facebook account whose nickname is Đinh Nhật Uy.

Initially Đinh Nhật Uy only used it to send messages to friends. But as from around November 2012, after his younger brother Đinh Nguyên Kha was charged with conducting propaganda against the State of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, this facebook account was regularly used by Đinh Nhật Uy to post news, to sare [misspelling of “share” – note by the translator] images and links, and to send messages.

(The accused’s declaration: record no.97-100, no. 119)

Beside articles, images and information sharing with ordinary contents, Đinh Nhật Uy posted bad and false information about the State, organizations and individuals:

- The article titled “Those Party members who dare to accept the truth”, created on December 19, 2012. This article quoted the talk between two communist cadres in a café, evaluating the leaders’ capacity to govern the country with offensive languages, but failed to prove the factual basis of this talk.

(The accused’s declaration: record no. 107-109; confiscated documents: record no. 48-49)

- The post created on December 21, 2012 contained offensive language, insulting Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Thâm (who lived in the house opposite to Uy’s, and was the Deputy Head of the residential district’s women association.

(The accused’s declaration: record no. 107-109; confiscated documents: record no. 47-48)

- The post created on January 22, 2013 reported on the activities of the group “Patriotic Youth” who distributed pamphlets in the area of Long An province, although Đinh Nhật Uy was aware that “Patriotic Youth” is an anti-state organization.

(The accused’s declaration: record no. 114-115; confiscated documents: record no. 40)

- The post created on March 2, 2013 contained crude words, insulting and influencing the brand of the Vietnam Military Telecommunications Group (Viettel) [It should be “Vietel” – note by the translator] and the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT).

(The accused’s declaration: record no. 112-113; confiscated documents: record no. 33-34)

Those above-mentioned images and articles were seen and read by many people. Many people shared, pressed “like”, and gave comments, of which many comments smeared and insulted the State, organizations and citizens.

Besides, Đinh Nhật Uy raised many issues on his facebook page for others to read and comment, using offensive language.

For example, on January 2, 2013, on posting the link into the article titled “Exposing the true face of the human right award Hellman/Hammett” published on trandaiquang.net [trandaiquang stands for Trần Đại Quang, the name of the Vietnamese Minister of Public Security; trandaiquang.net appears to be a pro-state website – note by the translator], Uy commented, “What a lie. You can only cheat the fools.” Below this post of him, there were 18 people pressing “like” and 7 people giving comments, many of those comments were insulting.

(The accused’s declaration: record no. 104-106; confiscated documents: record no. 43-44)

On the contents of Đinh Nhật Uy’s articles and the comments, according to the Examining Report, no. 01/BB-GDDVH, dated July 18, 2017, examiners at the Long An Department of Culture, Sport and Tourism confirmed as follows:

1.     On the contents of the articles by the accused Đinh Nhật Uy:

- The article printed on sheet 03 trespassed on the Vietnam Military Telecommunications Group (Vietel) and the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT), badly influencing these organizations’ brand and business results.

2.     On the contents of the comments
Some comments printed on this sheet [verbatim – note and bold by the translator] trespassed on the prestige of such organizations as the Vietnamese People’s Police, the Vietnam Military Telecommunications Group (Viettel) and the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT); infringed upon the dignity and prestige of some related individuals.

3. That Đinh Nhật Uy posted those above-mentioned articles on his personal facebook page, connected with and shared other people’s facebook pages trespassed on social order and security, the prestige of the Vietnamese People’s Police and other related organizations and individuals.

(Examining report: Record no. 227-228)

In this legal case, some organizations and individuals whose legitimate rights and interests were infringed on such as Viettel, VNPT and Mrs. Nguyễn Thị Thâm had requested legal punishment upon Đinh Nhật Uy but had not claimed compensation for the damaged caused by the infringement on their honor, dignity and prestige.

(Record no. 219, 220-226, 441-451)
