On the morning of October 28, 2018, a public security officer in plainclothes, from Dong Da Ward, named Duy, came to prevent Dung from leaving his house. When Dung asked if he was a public security officer, Duy didn’t deny it, and continued blocking Dung from leaving his house.

He then admitted his identity as a public security officer, but forbid Dung from recording him. When Dung questioned the legal basis of the prohibition, he was not able to show any documents. He simply claimed that he was on duty and under the command of his unit heads. They entered into a fight, and the security officer slapped Dung’s mother during the conflict, according to his video.
