Two Vietnamese Journalists Go On Trial

In Vietnam, two of the country’s best-known investigative journalists appeared in court on Tuesday, charged with “abusing freedom and democracy” after exposing a major corruption scandal. Nguyen Van Hai confessed that some of the information in his stories was wrong, but his co-accused Nguyen Viet Chien denied any wrongdoing. The prosecution is seeking a jail sentence of two and a half years for the latter and a probation term for the former. Outside the court, many journalists demonstrated their solidarity with the accused; some were carrying flowers.
