Vietnam: Free human rights blogger “Mother Mushroom”

Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh, also known by her blogging name, “Mother Mushroom” (Mẹ Nấm), was sentenced on 29 June 2017 in the People’s Court of Khanh Hoa Province, after she was detained in October 2016 on charges related to her activism and blog posts. She had been detained for nine months incommunicado before being brought to court last week. International monitors and state embassies were not allowed to follow the court proceedings, which has further raised concerns that she did not receive a fair trial..
