On October 6, 2019, three members of Chan Hung Nuoc Viet TV, an independent media organization that reports news and debates on national issues, joined a workshop on the East Sea (South China Sea) in Hanoi. They were Tuan, Le Dung Vova (Le Van Dung), and Cat Linh (Tran Thi My Linh).
After the workshop ended, they went to a cafeteria at To Hien Thanh Street, Hai Ba Trung District, for lunch. At 11:38 AM, a group of more than ten public security officers stormed into the place and “invited” the trio to Nguyen Gia Thieu’s police station, where they were detained and interrogated separately about their journalism activities for more than seven hours.
Police requested that they delete all the recordings and notes from the workshop and also confiscated all of their property, notably eight cell phones, two cameras, and other types of equipment.
The three were all released at 6:00 PM and told to return and work with police again the next day.
