We demand the Government Committee for Religious Affairs make clear the reason why it refused the visit, [and] in addition, obey the law and respect religious freedom specified by the constitution and laws,” Bishop Paul Nguyen Thai Hop of Vinh said in response.

Vinh, a city of nearly 500,000, is the site of particularly egregious violations of religious liberty, according to the report.
