Pastor Nguyen Trung Ton who has been sentenced for 12-year in prison, accused of plotting to overthrow the government and charged under Article 79 of Vietnam’s penal code, has been punished by prison authorities.

After visiting her husband, his wife Nguyen Thi Lanh told Radio Free Asia’s Vietnamese Service that prison authorities are forcing him to sit by himself, away from the other inmates as he reviews prison rules because they are worried that he may influence the others.
