Vietnam’s Evasive Answer to UN Human Rights Experts about Dong Guangping Cannot Stand

For Immediate Release

Three months after United Nations human rights experts wrote to the Vietnamese government demanding answers to a number of questions about disappeared Chinese human rights defender Dong Guangping, the government has responded with the blithe statement that, “After the verification process, the authorities in Viet Nam have had no information regarding Dong Guangping in Viet Nam.”

That means that seven months since he disappeared after he was arrested, handcuffed, blindfolded and taken into custody in Hanoi by Vietnamese police, Dong Guangping remains missing, his family knows nothing about his fate, and the Vietnamese government continues to refuse to disclose his whereabouts.

Disappearance of Dong Guangping: Government of Vietnam Must Respond to UN Human Rights Experts

February 14, 2023

Reacting to news that the government of Vietnam has failed to respond to urgent questions from three independent United Nations experts seeking clarification about the fate and whereabouts of her father, disappeared Chinese human rights defender Dong Guangping, Katherine Dong said that,

The government of Vietnam continues to torment my family, by refusing to explain why they arrested my father almost six months ago, and what has happened to him since. I had hoped he would be safely reunited with us here in Canada by now, instead we are left to agonize about his safety. We don’t even know where he is. They won’t answer my questions.  They won’t answer questions posed by the Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada.  Now they refuse to answer the United Nations. This is unacceptable and an affront to international law. Vietnamese officials must answer our simple question, ‘where is Dong Guangping?’
