(The Courier-Mail) – Vietnam will free 7,751 prisoners, including political prisoners and 19 foreigners, to mark the 30th anniversary this weekend of the end of the Vietnam War, the police have announced. President Tran Duc Luong had ordered the amnesty to mark the anniversary of the fall of Saigon , the former capital of the US-backed South Vietnamese regime, to communist forces on April 30, 1975, police vice minister Le The Tiem said. Tiem gave no details of the cases or when the prisoners would be freed. Another 13 people behind bars for “public disorder” would also walk free, including eight members of ethnic minorities in the Central Highlands where thousands of mainly Christian Montagnards staged protests last year against the confiscation of their ancestral lands and religious persecution. The protests provoked a brutal response.
