On Friday a court in Vietnam jailed a music teacher for 11 years on Friday for a series of “anti-state” posts on Facebook. Nguyen Nang Tinh, 43, was accused of “making and spreading anti-state information and materials.”

Despite sweeping economic reform and increasing openness to social change, Vietnam’s ruling Communist Party retains tight media censorship and does not tolerate criticism.

Nguyen’s one-day trial was held at the People’s Court in the northern-central province of Nghe An, his lawyers said.

“At the trial, Nguyen also said the accusation was not true as this Facebook account didn’t belong to him.”

“The prosecutors stuck to the idea that the Facebook user named Nguyen Nang Tinh and my client Nguyen Nang Tinh are the same person”, Reuters reported.
