Assemblymember Tom Daly (D – Anaheim) issued the following statement in response to the 12-year prison sentence determined without due process:
“The federal government must immediately pursue all diplomatic options for securing the release of U.S. citizen Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen. He was convicted in a ‘show trial,’ without the ability to defend himself and without any formal charges being filed. This travesty of justice must be reversed, and he must be released from custody and returned to his family and friends in Orange County.”
