Man arrested for distributing anti-government documents

HCM CITY — The HCM City Police's Investigation Agency on Saturday arrested Nguyen Dan Que for keeping and distributing documents calling for the overthrow of the Government.

The agency said yesterday it had received information on Que's actions from members of the public. A check at Que's home revealed more than 60,000 documentary titles of anti-State content on his computer. The police seized many documents related to Que's anti-Government activities, including one entitled "Doctor Nguyen Dan Que's appeal to all people", which called on the public to rise up against the Government.

Police said Que admitted possession of documents that he had compiled on Thursday. He also admitted to having distributed them to a number of reactionary and hostile elements in the country and abroad with the aim to call for strikes to bring down the regime, police said.

Que, who was born in 1942, with a permanent residence at 104/20 Nguyen Trai Street, Ward 3, District 5, HCM City, had three previous convictions and offences for violating national security, the investigating agency said. Although the Party and State had shown clemency to him in the past, Que had failed to continue his anti-Government activities.

The agency affirmed that the search of Que's home and his arrest were conducted in line with the national Criminal Procedure Code. The agency was holding Que in custody for further investigations in line with the law.

The agency said Que's action directly threatened the stability and strength of the people's administration. The detection, prevention and dealing with Que's violation of the law was necessary to ensure political stability for socio-economic development of HCM City. — VNS
