Vietnam: Activist blogger faces tax fraud charges

Vietnamese activist Nguyen Hoang Hai, better known by the blogging name of Dieu Cay, is facing tax fraud cases. But he claims these are trumped up charges. According to his supporters, the government wants him jailed for being a founding member of Free Vietnamese Journalists Club.

  • I actually had a problem with my taxes last year. I was hurt and was put on FMLA. After being on that for 2 months I guess I didn’t have my taxes taken out of my weekly checks. So I guess I owe money now…right?
