Dinh Nhat Uy sings while celebrating his freedom at a restaurant in Vietnam's southern Long An province October 29, 2013. Uy, a Vietnamese Facebook user who campaigned online for the release of his brother Dinh Nguyen Kha jailed for criticising the government was handed on Tuesday the relatively light sentence of 15 months of house arrest for "abusing" his freedom. A court in Long An province ruled that Uy's Facebook effort to overturn his brother's conviction in May last year for anti-state propaganda fell foul of the same law, one that activists and Western governments say is being used to silence critics of Vietnam's one-party, communist rule.
