Tran Van Quyen was arrested by the Ministry of Public Security on January 23, 2019 while drinking coffee with friends in Di An Town, Binh Duong Province. After that, he was taken back to the house for a house search at around 8:00 am. The Public Security did not provide either arrest order nor search warrant to the family.

When Quyen’s family went to the detention center to send him food and clothes, investigators only informed them verbally about his arrest, accusing him of “participating in terrorist organization Viet Tan.” According to the latest news on February 2, 2019, security forces have not sent any formal document on his arrest. Quyen is currently detained in the B34 Detention Center of the Ministry of Public Security in Cu Chi.
