When arrival in the gate-a new camp that he was just in an move of the day 14-8-2012 – both of them submitted papers relating to the security guard and into the living room waiting for officers in charge into the camp to visit. Just as in the old prison, relatives of Father Ly always be met in the hall or in a special room, different from the other inmates (so easy to follow). This time the two brothers get him to meet in the hall on the first floor of the newly built large house. Wait for a while, both see Father Ly remote “managers” carried out by motorcycle, ran down and helped the prisoners walked up the stairs. Father Ly a handrail stair handrail, while the other hand give relatives helped steps. Radiant with joy, smiling and cheering for a meeting with relatives, but severely paralyzed legs shuffled!
Hand in hand, greetings be done already, Mr. Hoang let Father Ly know that Father Chan Tin, Redemptorist, Father Nguyen Kim Dien group members (which he was also part of an) and Chair of the magazine Freedom of Speech (that Father Ly is a co-founder) died on the evening of May 01 12 in Saigon.
