Kpuil Lễ is an ethnic Montagnard Christian arrested in November 2011. He was tried in June 2012 and sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment under Article 87 (Undermining the unity policy) of the 1999 Penal Code. He was last reported detained at Gia Lai prison camp.


He was due for release from prison in November 2019. The 88 Project has been unable to verify his release, and thus, we have listed him as "likely released - at risk." We acknowledge that he may still be imprisoned, and if he was released, he may still be at risk of harassment or even rearrest.
