HÀ NỘI — The Hà Nội Department of Public Security today issued a wanted notice for Lê Văn Dũng, alias Lê Dũng Vova, who has been charged with anti-State propaganda.

Dũng, born in 1970 in Hà Nội, was accused of "making, storing, distributing or disseminating information, documents, items against the State of the Socialist Republic of Việt Nam" under Article 117 of the 2015 Penal Code.

His last known residence was in the city's Hà Cầu Ward, Hà Đông District.

He was said to have joined in anti-State activities and protests disrupting security and order since 2011. He allegedly took part in several subversive groups as well as some movements launched by domestic and overseas reactionary elements.

Since 2018, Dũng led the so-called 'Phong trào chấn hưng nước Việt' (Movement to revive Vietnam) and publicly set up some channels and pages like 'Tiếng dân tivi' (People’s Voice TV), 'Eva tivi', and 'Chấn hưng tivi' (Revival TV) on YouTube and Facebook, frequently posting videos that allegedly distorted and defamed the administrations and leaders of localities to attract likes and support for reactionaries. — VNS
