In this Vietnamese name, the family name is Phạm. According to Vietnamese custom, this person should properly be referred to by the given name Hoàng.

Phạm Minh Hoàng (born 1955) is a Vietnamese French-educated lecturer in applied mathematics at the Ho Chi Minh City Institute of Technology,[1][2] who was arrested in Vietnam on charges of belonging to the pro-democracy organization Viet Tan, which is banned in Vietnam.[3]


At the time of the arrest, he was a temporary teaching applied mathematics at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology.[1]

Hoang's wife, Le Thi Kieu Oanh, believed her husband was arrested because he supported the protests against controversial Chinese-run bauxite mines in Vietnam's Central Highlands.[1] Hoang was in police custody from August 13, 2010,[4] was later convicted of holding membership in Viet Tan, and released on 13 January 2012.[5]
