– However, this photo, contrary to Mr. A’s words, was the contents of a guestbook that candidate Lee left at the birthplace of Vietnam’s first president, Ho Chi Minh, while in office as prime minister. At the time, Candidate Lee attended the funeral of Vietnam’s President Tran Dai Quang and wrote in his guestbook, “Great but frugal, frugal but great, loved the people, and in front of the life of the President, who was loved by the people, we become infinitely small and ashamed.” .

In the course of the trial, Mr. A claimed, “I didn’t know it was false after being reported by the viewers, and there was no purpose to dismiss it,” but the court did not accept it.

The court said, “The defendant published and distributed a personal broadcast containing content that slandered the preliminary candidate’s ideological bias or transferability prior to the general election.” “The so-called’color theory’ debate caused the correct judgment of the voters. The crime is not very good because there is a high risk of doing it,” he explained the reason for the sentence.
