The state considers the American Committee for Religious Freedom as well as Radio as reactionary organizations because they promote freedom and respect for human rights in Vietnam.
However under international pressure the case was put on the back burner.
On 28 November 2003 the Supreme People’s Court of Hanoi reduced the sentence of the two brothers to 32 months and Thi Hoa’s sentence to four months and six days. Both of them had been in detention on remand for more than two and a half years, while their sister had been placed under house arrest during this time.
