HCM City (VNS) — The People's Court of the central province of Phu Yen sentenced Ngo Hao, a resident of Tuy Hoa City, to 15 years in prison yesterday for conducting activities aimed at overthrowing the government.

According to the indictment of the provincial People's Procuracy, between 2008 and 2012, Ngo Hao wrote articles and distributed documents that contained distorted information about the regime and defamed leaders. He did this under instructions from Nguyen Chinh Ket, a member of an overseas organisation called Bloc 8406, with the aim of overthrowing the administration of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam.

He also carried out activities for the "Exiled Government of the Republic of Vietnam" led by Nguyen Van Chuc (in the US), inducing several people to join him in searching for weapons hidden by Nguyen Tat Thinh (former governor of Go Cong Province) before 1975 and to receive documents defaming the administration and the Communist Party of Viet Nam.

Hao received money from the "Exiled Government of the Republic of Vietnam" many times and also asked the organisation to send money to those involved in the activities he organised.

The provincial Investigation Police brought legal proceedings against him on February 7. — VNS
