Vuong was arrested after being invited to his former workplace to allegedly receive a gift. His residence was also searched and electronics confiscated on the same day.

The arrest came after he had made two posts on his Facebook that seemed to criticize his former employer.

A source close to the family confirmed the arrest to The 88 Project and also told us that Vuong had recently also posted a Facebook post critical of the Communist Party.

Vuong’s wife has been able to send him supplies but not visit him.
