He was arrested and prosecuted by the Police of District 3, Ho Chi Minh City on June 18.

On October 8, 2018, the People’s Court of District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, sentenced him to one year of suspended sentence and two years of probation  under the charge of “disturbing the public order.”

According to the indictment, he was tempted by “bad people,” who paid him money for his participation in the protest against two bills on Special Economic Zones and Cybersecurity on June 10. He “marched” with the crowd from Phu Nhuan District to District 1 and was blocked by police at Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street of District 3. At that time, one of defendants in his same trial allegedly used sticks and stones to damage a bus. Nguyen Huynh D. then allegedly also used sticks and threw stones and bricks to break the glass and damage two more buses. However, none of these accusations were supported by evidence neither at the trial nor in state media.
