Vietnam cyber-dissident expected to face court
HANOI - A detained Vietnamese cyber-dissident is expected to face trial soon, possibly as early as this week, for "abusing democratic freedoms," say relatives and overseas-based pro-democracy activists.

The mother of 25-year-old Truong Quoc Huy said her family had received a summons to attend his trial Monday afternoon in Ho Chi Minh City, but a court official who refused to give his name said the hearing had been postponed.

Vietnam's communist government has in recent weeks arrested several politicaldissidents and late last month sentenced one prominent activist, Catholic priest Nguyen Van Ly, to eight years' jail.

Huy, a mobile telephone technician, was first arrested in an Internet cafe in Ho Chi Minh City in October 2005 after joining online discussions on democracy on the website Paltalk.com.

Detained with him were his brother Truong Quoc Tuan and Tuan's fiance Pham Ngoc Anh Dao, a US citizen also known as Lisa Pham.

The three spent nine months in detention without charge.
