Nguyen Huu Cau

         Former Captain Nguyen Huu Cau from the South Vietnamese Army spent six years in some of the infamous reeducation camps before being released in 1981.

         For having accused communist officials of taking bribes, he was sentenced in 1982 to death, which was commuted to life. Being incarcerated for a total of 35 years makes him the longest political detainee of Hanoi's infamous jails.

         His family reported that he has been in poor and may die in jail like Tran Van Suong.
