REF: Vietnamese fishermen shot dead by Chinese marine police

His/Her Excellency,

We, Vietnamese people, vehemently oppose the outrageous and brutal actions of Chinese marine police on innocent Vietnamese fishermen on January 8, 2005 at Beibu Gulf.

On January 8, 2005, at Beibu Gulf, Vietnamese sea area, Chinese marine police unduly attacked, opened fire on two Vietnamese fishing vessels and ruthlessly killed 9 fishermen, wounded 7 and, captured 8. Chinese marine police also captured illegally fishing vessels and assets of these fishermen.

Upon information and belief, all of these fishermen are innocent people. These victims are extremely poor innocent people who have been trying very hard to make a living to support their families. As a result of the brutal killing by Chinese marine police, many innocent children fatherless, many wives widows, and many parents without sons. In addition, all of the victims are the main sources of income for these poor families. Attached are photos evidencing these poor families.

At present, the fates of the 8 captured fishermen are still unknown. Their loved ones are traumatized worrying about their status

We, Vietnamese People, strongly believe that the Chinese marine policefs s brutal actions extremely violated Principles of the United Nation Charter, the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, regional and bilateral agreements on sea border issues, and specifically Joint Statement on All-round Cooperation in the New Century Between the Peoplefs Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam dated 12/26/2000 which two countries agreed to pledge gnot to take extreme action or make use of forceh on fisheries-related issuesh

For the long-lasting economic and diplomatic relationship between the two countries, we respectfully request the Chinese government and/or authorities to take immediate efforts to prevent and stop these actions, open a due and thorough investigation, and severely punish the murderer.

We demand the Chinese authorities to promptly release the illegally captured Vietnamese fishermen, fishing vessels and assets.

Due to the level of violence that was inflicted upon Vietnamese innocent fishermen and callous actions of Chinese marine polices, who displayed a depraved indifference to human life, we demand that the Chinese government adequately compensate for lost lives and assets caused by the above-mentioned ungrounded killing and seizure of Chinese marine polices.

Without proper and persuasive evidence and/or proof, we strongly oppose Chinese diplomatic authoritiesf unreasonable remark that these above Vietnamese innocent victims are pirates. We demand that the Chinese government comply with the international rules and respect bilateral agreements, and traditional diplomatic customs in regards to the common sea border between Vietnam and China.

Finally, we demand the Chinese government to take due efforts to unveil the truth and bring justice to these innocent lives. Especially, on the occasion of celebrating 55 years of establishing diplomatic relationship between China and Vietnam, 01/18/2005, we again expect Chinese authorities to pay prompt and due attention to these matters.
