    Yêu cầu Nhân Quyền QT thường xuyên giám sát các trại tù giam những người tù vì bất đồng chánh kiến . CSVN Cần ngưng ngay các ngược đải nhục hình ,nhầm giết người lần mòn , bịnh tật là tất nhiên ,là hình thức giết người họp pháp . CSVN không bao giờ tôn trọng Nhân Quyền , là chế độ gian ác , phản nhân dân ,chống nhân loại . Nếu có bầu cử tự do dưới sự giám sát QT, thì chúng sẽ bị xóa sạch . Vì vậy chúng rất sợ Nhâ Quyền , thế giới không thể làm ngơ
