CSW - everyone free to believe


General briefing: Vietnam

24 Oct 2018

There have been some limited positive developments in Vietnam, mostly at central government level; for example the addition of a chapter on human rights in the amended constitution (2013), and the official recognition of additional religious groups.

However, these developments are undermined by continued reports of severe violations of the freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) of Catholics, Cao Daists, Hoa Hao Buddhists, Protestant Christians and Muslims. The violations range from harassment, intimidation and intrusive monitoring, to arrest, imprisonment, torture and extra-judicial killing.
