Accelerating the struggle for justice for AO victims


QĐND – Tuesday, August 10, 2010, 20:50 (GMT+7)

Diplomats, lawyers, businesspeople and young people gathered at talks in Ho Chi Minh City on August 9 to point out the role, responsibility and behaviour of each individual in caring, helping and struggling for justice for Agent Orange victims.


Lawyer Truong Trong Nghia, Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Bar Federation, said that AO has caused a long-term effect on many Vietnamese generations and the environment, including deep spiritual wounds that cannot be compensated for.


The focus will be on implementing measures to prevent the transmission of AO chemicals to children, and building care centres, schools and vocational training centres for AO victims to help them integrate into the community, and accelerating the struggle for justice for the victims.


Doctor Nguyen Thi Ngoc Phuong, Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA), Nguyen Thi Ngoc Phuong said that the struggle for justice for AO victims has made some progress.


The US Government has not yet acknowledged its legal responsibility for dealing with the consequences of the AO chemical but it is gradually admitting its responsibility and helping to deal with the problem. The US plans to provide US$300 million the AO victims in the next 10 years.


The VAVA will continue the struggle for justice for AO victims and mobilise the community’s support for them.
