Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has named, with the support of Google, 61-year-old Vietnamese blogger Huynh Ngoc Chenh the "Net-Citizen of the Year".

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) issued Thursday, March 7, with the support of Google, Net-Award 2013 Vietnamese blogger citizen Huynh Ngoc Chenh, 61 years.

Huynh Ngoc Chenh is one of the most influential bloggers in Vietnam. His blog attracts about 15,000 visitors per day, but stuck in the country. Readers must use software to circumvent censorship (VPN) to read his articles.

He does not hesitate to criticize the government and defend freedom of expression. Born in 1952 in the province of Da Nang in central Vietnam, he joined the Thanh Nien newspaper in 1992, where he worked as a journalist and has held positions of high responsibility until his retirement in April 2012. He started blogging in 2008 on Yahoo 360, before moving on Blogspot in 2011. It focuses on issues of democracy, human rights and territorial disputes between Vietnam and China in the East Sea.

Threatened by the authorities for his articles, he was particularly placed on monitoring and listening. Despite all his problems, he continues to write and respond to questions from foreign media on the most sensitive issues in Vietnam.
