Torture alleged

A Human Rights Watch report issued on June 14 said the Vietnamese government is violating

an agreement with United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) by detaining,

interrogating and torturing Montagnard refugees who have returned to Vietnam from

UNHCR camps in Cambodia.

The 55-page report, No Sanctuary: Ongoing Threats to Indigenous Montagnards in Vietnam's

Central Highlands, uses eyewitness accounts and published sources to give new information

about what it calls the religious and political persecution of Montagnards in Vietnam's

Central Highlands.

"The Vietnamese government continues to persecute Montagnards once they are

out of sight of international observers," said Brad Adams, Asia director at

Human Rights Watch.

More than 60 Montagnards have been imprisoned after being forcibly returned to Vietnam

from Cambodia, where they were seeking asylum.
