Vietnamese authorities rule Christian leader’s prison death a suicide

From Catholic Culture:

Vietnamese police have ruled that a Christian leader’s March prison death was caused by suicide through electrocution.

Hoang Van Ngai, an elder of the Evangelical Church of Vietnam, died in prison in Dak Nong Province, which is located in the southern part of the Communist nation. Ngai’s brother, who was imprisoned in an adjacent cell, heard him being beaten by prison authorities on the night of his death.

“Ngai appears to have been targeted for his Christian faith and his determination to stand up to corrupt officials,” said an official of Christian Solidarity Worldwide, which monitors the persecution of Christians.
