4/5/2024 Vietnam (International Christian Concern) – The U.S. State Department released a statement on April 1 expressing deep concerns for the ongoing harassment, persecution, and convictions of Vietnamese religious freedom advocates.

In the release, the State Department addressed the case of Protestant missionary Y Krec Bya, who received a 13-year sentence for allegedly “sabotaging national unity” in Vietnam.

International Christian Concern has highlighted several of these cases in recent years, particularly regarding ethnic minority Christian groups like the Montagnards.

The State Department is calling for the release of these prisoners and for the ruling Vietnamese Party to respect freedom of association, assembly, and religion.
