Police in central Vietnam’s Quang Ngai Province have detained a local man who regularly distorted the country’s actual situations and incited opposition against the State of Vietnam through his livestreams on Facebook.

The man, 57-year-old Le Quoc Hung, was prosecuted on Friday on charges of “making, storing, spreading information, materials, items for the purpose of opposing the State of Socialist Republic of Vietnam” pursuant to Article 117 of the Penal Code, the provincial police department announced.

Along with the detention order, a house search warrant was also issued and executed for Hung on the same day. 

The man had been found using many Facebook accounts to livestream contents against the State of Vietnam, deliberately misrepresented the nation’s situations, offended late President Ho Chi Minh, and incited people to claim for pluralism and a multi-party system in Vietnam.

In addition, Hung repeatedly received money from a number of overseas reactionaries who conducted sabotage against Vietnam, and let them regularly participate in his livestreams, speaking together opposing the Party and the State.

The provincial police department are expanding their investigation into the case.
