Freedom House condemns today’s decision to postpone the August 7 trial for three Vietnamese bloggers. This is the third time the court has delayed the trial, which stems from charges widely considered to be punishment for their criticism of the government. Freedom House calls for the Vietnamese government to drop all charges against the three bloggers and ensure their immediate release.

The capability of repressive governments to monitor users of mobile phones and block access to internet content is far beyond levels realized by users and presents significant risks for user privacy and safety, according to a new report released today by Freedom House and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG). This is a serious problem in countries that lack the rule of law and where civil liberties are not respected.
