Nguyen Dinh Can, Former deputy head of Hoa Lo prison’s liaison board: Remembering a resilient revolutionary soldier On receiving the news of former Party General Secretary Do Muoi’s passing away, I recollected my memories of those fierce days at Hoa Lo prison in Hanoi. During the time I was imprisoned, I fully understood the obstacles and fierceness faced by brother Do Muoi and I became more respectful of the strong will and courage of brother Muoi and his fellow prisoners, who made their escape from the prison to continue to serve the Party in March 1945. Brother Do Muoi joined the national revolutionary in 1936. In 1941, he was arrested by the French colonialists and sentenced to 10 years in jail. He served his sentence at Ha Dong and Hoa Lo prisons in Hanoi. Although revolutionary soldiers faced fierce living conditions at Hoa Lo prison, brother Muoi joined his fellow prisoners to manage their lives. Despite being sentenced, he and his fellow prisoners made every effort … [Read more...] about Former Party leader Do Muoi in the memory of Vietnamese people

Hoang Phuong, journalist. When Tieu returned from the war, all he wanted was a normal and peaceful life. He wanted to get married, have a child, live on the farm and take care of his elderly mother. But little did he know that his fate had already been sealed the day he enlisted. At 18, Tieu was one of the many Vietnamese soldiers exposed to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. Not many of Tieu’s comrades fared so well later. Some died of cancer, others lost their sight, while their children suffered from a slew of neurological handicaps. Tieu’s family was no exception. He had two sons with neurological issues, and so did his six grandchildren. One way or another, Tieu and his wife managed to get their two sons married. The brides, both from a neighboring village, never knew about their husbands’ condition until a while after. Three generations now live under the same roof, in a house built with the community’s support. Eleven people make ends meet with … [Read more...] about Dear Monsanto. It’s never been about the money.

The two foreigners who were cheated with joss paper as change in the capital city this week were Spanish, not French, and the fake money came from a taxi driver, not a cyclo driver as earlier reported, police said on Saturday. Miguel Angel Fernandez Lamelas and his girlfriend arrived in Hanoi on July 15. The day after, the couple took a ride with Tran Van Phong, 29, from a restautant to their hotel in Long Bien District at around 7 p.m. for VND37,000 ($1.62). They gave Phong a VND500,000 ($21.84) note and he returned them with VND900,000 in joss paper, which is usually burnt as offerings for deceased relatives in Vietnam, investigation found. The tourists said they hadn’t noticed how much the change was because it was dark. They said it was the first time they were visiting the country, so they were not able to distinguish between the ‘real’ paper money and joss paper. It was only a day later, when they used the money to pay Huu Phuc, another taxi driver, that … [Read more...] about Foreign tourists in Hanoi received fake money from taxi driver: police
VietNamNet Bridge - The Government Inspectors’ conclusion that $5 billion worth of state’s money is “wrongly spent”’ a year has stirred up the public, reported Dat Viet. Vietnam needs huge capital for infrastructure development “$5 billion means 2-3 percent of Vietnam’s annual GDP ($200 billion). This is an unacceptably high level,” said Nguyen Van Ngai from the HCM City Agriculture & Forestry University. He noted that this is the official figure released by the Government’s Inspector and he is not sure if there are unreported figures. “I am afraid that if taking unreported figures into consideration, the real figure would be even higher,” he said. Dinh The Hien, an economist, said it is necessary to clarify what “wrongly spent” means. “Does ‘wrongly spent’ include expense items which don’t come in line with the laws, ineffective expense items and expenses in embezzlement … [Read more...] about $5 billion ‘wrongly spent’ each year: where has the money gone?
