According to CNN.com a high profile dissidant - an online blogger has arrived in the U.S. where she has been granted asylum following her release from prison in her home country. Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh, who is also known as "Mother Mushroom" arrived in the U.S. accompanied by her mother and two young children. In her home country she had also been arrested by the public department of security on October 10th of 2016, and was convicted in June of 2016. She was released a year and a half in to a 10-year sentence for conducting anti-state propoganda. U.S. embassy spokeswoman Karen Tang said the U.S. Government had consistently called for the release of Quynh and other persons in prison in Vietnam for exercising their human rights and fundamental freedoms.
