We apologize for the inconvenience, but know that you are helping us out tremendously by bringing your attention to this cause. 


We wish to bring your attention to the plight of Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen.  On June 27, 2018, Michael traveled to Vietnam to visit friends and family. However, he did not return on his scheduled flight.  Through various sources, he is presumed to be currently detained and imprisoned by the Vietnamese government. As of July 27th, Michael has already been missing for 21 days.  The government there refuses to acknowledge his detainment, or share any information about his condition. As of today, we have not been able to confirm his whereabouts or what he was charged with. For any government to incarcerate anyone without any probable cause is a blatant violation of human rights and of international law, especially if the detained is a citizen of another country.

Michael, 54, is a U.S. Citizen, California resident, father of 4 daughters, an independent business man and an active member of his community and church.  Much of Michael's family members reside in Texas. His family is very concern for his safety.

We, as U.S. citizens, hereby demand an immediate and unconditional release of Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen. Failure to do so only serves to further discredit the Vietnamese government in the eyes of the international community, and equally important, in the eyes Vietnamese people.

We respectfully asked for your assistance in this cause.
