The government is going after online anonymity by trying to prevent bloggers from using pseudonyms. This could make it easier for the authorities both to harass them and to arrest and jail them.”Signed by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and due to take effect next month, the decree makes it an offence to publish information that is “non-authorised” or “not in the interests of the people.” By interpreting these vague definitions broadly, the authorities will be able to increase the number of arrests of blogger and journalists.The decree also provides for fines of up to 3 million dong (155 dollars) for anyone who publishes documents or letters without identifying themselves or revealing their sources, and for up to 20 million dong if the documents are linked to an official investigation.With a total of 15 netizens and three journalists currently detained, Vietnam is already the world’s second biggest prison for netizens. It was ranked 165th out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet.” News Receive email alerts VietnamAsia – Pacific April 7, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
