Reports: Torture in Vietnam
Torture in Vietnam 2018: A Joint NGO Report to the UN Committee against Torture
Vietnam signed the UN Convention Against Torture in November 2013. Five years later, police brutality, torture, and lethal beatings continue unabated throughout Vietnam.
In this joint report by Vietnamese and international civil society organizations to the United Nations Committee Against Torture, we document the widespread use of torture in Vietnam, the systematic impunity of the abusers, and the lack of concrete action by the government of Vietnam to effectively reduce and prevent acts of torture.

Campaign to Abolish Torture in Vietnam, 2014
CAT-VN's comprehensive report on torture and mistreatment of Vietnamese prisoners of conscience offers a rare, in-depth account of abuses in Vietnam's notoriously inaccessible prisons and detention centers. It exposes the harsh methods used by various levels of the Vietnamese government to silence and punish its critics and remove them from the public eye.
The report offers specific recommendations to the Vietnamese government and international stakeholders on practical approaches to systematically abolish torture in Vietnam.
