HANOI:- A Vietnamese court on Monday jailed a blogger for seven years for disseminating anti-state “propaganda” including articles which supported protests against a Taiwanese firm responsible for a toxic leak. Space for free expression is shrinking in the Communist country, with at least 15 activists and dissidents having been arrested and several others jailed so far this year. Nguyen Van Hoa, 22, an environmental activist , was accused of instigating protests against authorities via his Facebook account, mainly following the 2016 toxic leak at a steel factory operated by Taiwan’s Formosa.
