Christian lawyer released in Vietnam

(christiansunite.com) - Le Thi Cong Nhan, a Christian prisoner of conscience who had called for democratic freedoms in Vietnam, was released earlier this month after serving a three-year sentence for "propagandizing to destroy the Socialist Republic of Vietnam".

Attorney Cong Nhan's sentence had been reduced by one year after an international outcry over her sentencing. She was released on March 6.

Now serving an additional three-year house arrest sentence, Cong Nhan has stated that she has no intention of giving up her struggle for a just and free Vietnam and accepts that there may be a further price to pay.

While in prison, she went on a hunger strike two times when authorities took her Bible away from her. (Source: Compass Direct)

Thank the Lord that Cong Nhan has been released from prison. Pray that she will look to Christ for strength and grace as she faces three years of house arrest. Pray that other Christians in Vietnam will raise a voice for justice and freedom in the country.
