The Committee to Protect Journalists will call for the cases of five Vietnamese-American journalists who were killed between 1981 and 1990 to be reopened, based on information uncovered by ProPublica and Frontline. The suspected assassinations were the subject of CPJ’s 1994 report, “Silenced, The Unsolved Murders of Immigrant Journalists in the United States.”

CPJ will hold a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on June 1, to call for a new investigation. CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon, CPJ Program Director and Americas Senior Program Coordinator Carlos Lauría, and Tu Nguyen, the son of Nguyen Dam Phong, a publisher and reporter murdered in 1982, will speak at the event. A.C. Thompson, who examined the killings in “Terror in Little Saigon,” a ProPublica/Frontline documentary and Web series, will speak about his reporting. CPJ sent a letter to the Department of Justice calling for action to end impunity in the cases.
