O.C. activist Chanh Huu Nguyen freed

A South Korean High Court today freed Chanh Huu Nguyen, an Orange
County activist who has been held in that country for three months
after the Vietnamese government accused him of terrorism.
The 58-year-old Garden Grove resident was released from a detention
facility in Seoul after today's ruling. The court turned down
Vietnam's request that Nguyen be extradited, saying he is a "political
dissident," according to news reports there.
"I have believed in South Korea's judicial system, and now I am
grateful to the South Korean court for its fair ruling,'' Nguyen was
quoted as saying by the South Korean Yonhap News agency upon his
Nguyen was arrested during a visit to Seoul in April when the
Vietnamese government alleged that he was involved in various
terrorist activities, including a failed attempt to blow up statues of
Ho Chi Minh in 1999 and planting explosives in the Vietnamese Embassy
in Thailand in 2002.
Nguyen's family and members of the local Vietnamese community, who
have proclaimed his innocence and held several local rallies
supporting him, are delighted with the court's decision, said his son
Vinh Nguyen of Garden Grove.
"I don't think I've ever been happier in my whole life," he said. "I
cannot wait to see my father again."
Chanh Nguyen, founder of the Government of Free Vietnam exile group,
is expected to fly into Los Angeles on Saturday. Hundreds of
supporters plan to be at Los Angeles International Airport to welcome
him, his son said.
According to news reports, South Korean law bars the deportation of a
foreigner for political reasons, and according to a bilateral
extradition treaty the local prosecution is barred from appealing the
case to the Supreme Court, court officials said.
In Garden Grove on Wednesday night, hundreds flocked to the Government
of Free Vietnam radio station to hear a message from Chanh Nguyen,
said Daingu Nguyen, a spokesman for the family.
"It was a sleepless night for all of us," he said. "People were
screaming and crying. It was a very emotional night. We were very
happy to hear from (him)."
Chanh Nguyen's message, which came late last night, was brief.
"He thanked the Korean government and our people locally who marched
and held rallies in his support," Daingu Nguyen said. "I'm sure he'll
have a lot more to say when he returns."
