The  二 一 articles in this book contained fabricated information distorting and defaming the people’s administration.

Thành also repeatedly gave interviews about his book’s distribution to foreign media outlets and some individuals in the country. Those interviews were posted on the internet and Facebook.

He distributed more than  二 二0 copies of the book, including  一 九 四 delivered to others in Việt Nam and abroad via the post. He also sold and presented some to other individuals.

From September  一 三,  二0 一 九 to May  二 一,  二0 二0, Thành gained more than VNĐ 八0 million (nearly US$ 三, 五00 at the current exchange rate) from the book’s distribution, with most of the money transferred to his bank account.
