Amnesty International has released an Urgent Action on behalf of jailed activist Bui Thi Minh Hang. The organization reports that she is suffering from several ailments including an ulcer, acute headaches, and blackouts, at times, and is being denied the medical services that she needs. A prominent land rights/human rights activist, she is serving a three-year sentence for alleged traffic obstruction. She has also been involved in peaceful protest against Chinese claims in the South China Sea.
Please call upon Vietnam’s Minister of Public Security and Minister of Foreign Affairs to give Bui Thi Minh Hang access to medical treatment and to release her from prison altogether. You can find the Urgent Action, here: https://www.amnesty.org/download/Documents/ASA4133682016ENGLISH.pdf.
