Bangkok – Thailand, objecting to the use of Bangkok as the site for the launch of a report denouncing Vietnam’s human rights record, has denied entry to two of the report’s main authors, sources said Sunday.

The Paris-based International Federation for Human Rights and the Vietnam Committee on Human Rights had planned a press conference Monday at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT) to publish the report titled: From ‘Vision’ to Facts: Human Rights in Vietnam under its Chairmanship of ASEAN.

Vietnam, one of the world’s few remaining communist states, currently holds the chairmanship of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), of which Thailand is a founding member.

Thailand’s Foreign Ministry objected to the event, which has now been cancelled.
