Investigators from the Ministry of Public Security have asked the country's top prosecutors to press charges against two men who set up a broadcast station in Hanoi to propagate to people abroad a religion banned in several countries.


Vu Duc Trung, 30, and Le Van Thanh, 35, both Hanoi locals, are facing charges of "iIlegally loading information on telecommunication network."


Investigations show that between April last year and September this year, Trung set up three systems for receiving and broadcasting telecom signals at Thanh's house.


They were spreading the message of Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, to people overseas.


Falun Gong is a system of beliefs and practices founded in China by Li Hongzhi in 1992.
