"A French-Vietnamese math professor was sentenced yesterday to three years in prison for belonging to a banned pro-democracy group and publishing an anti-Communist blog, his lawyer said. Pham Minh Hoang, 56, was found guilty of trying to overthrow the government by posting 33 articles against Vietnam’s one-party Communist system and of holding membership in the Viet Tan and recruiting others to join the group."
