The Honorable John Hanford Ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom U.S. Department of State 2201 C Street NW Washington, DC 20520

Dear Mr. Ambassador,

With regarding to the well-documented record of the International Religious Freedom Report, 2003 on Vietnam released by the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, and in the interest of advancing human rights and religious freedom, I am writing to urge you to exercise your authority in accordance with the International Religious Freedom Act. The government of Vietnam has a long history of severe violations of religious freedom and human rights. Its recent detention of prominent Buddhist leaders Thich Huyen Quang and Thich Quang Do and the sentencing OF the advocates for democracy such as Le Chi Quang, Pham Hong Son, Nguyen Vu Binh, Nguyen Khac Toan, Tran Dung Tien demonstrate that Viet-Nam is in clear violation of the International Religious Freedom Act. I urge you to voice your strong support for religious freedom by designating Vietnam as a "country of particular concern" with respect to human rights and religious freedom. Please exercise your authority to further the cause OF human rights and religious freedom for the benefits of those not WHO ARE NOT as fortunate as we are. Sincerely,

[ Signature]
