Vietminli Reds Continue
To Violate neva Pact
By Retaining Refugees

HANOI (NC) The Vietminh communist government
continues to violate the Geneva agreement of last July by hind
ering Vietnamese villagers from leaving their zone.
Refugees who have succeeded in reaching Hanoi and Hai
phong from various areas concur in their reports of difficul
ties? in leaving the Vietminh zone. They also report that
thousands of their fellow villagers who want to leave are pre
vented by the Vietminh.
Each side is bound by the Ge
neva Agreement to authorize and
assist those who so desire to leave
one zone for another. Instead, ac
cording to accounts given inde
pendently by refugees in recent
weeks, the Vietminh are obstruct
ing the villagers’ departure by
force, intimidation and removal of
the means of transportation
This correspondent talked to
refugees from Thai Binh and Phat
Diem provinces who have seen
Vietminh manhandling Catholics
who were trying to leave their
Many report the Vietminh tac
tic of grabbing infants from their
mothers' arms to prevent fam
ilies from departing. One fam
ily showed me a four-year-old
boy whom Vietminh officials
tried to take forcib*y from his
mother's arms after the family
had stepped aboard a river boat.
In the tug-of-war that followed,
with the unfortunate baby in the
middle, the child's head hit the
side or the boat. I saw the ugly
bruise five days later at Hanoi.
The boat was already loaded with
passengers who resented the Viet
minh actions, so officials thought it
better to let it go. In refugee
camps at Haiphong, Vietminh agents
tell the people any relatives they
have left behind will be penalized
if the refugees don’t go back.
Fishermen* of one riverside vil
lage departed in their boats with
lhe apparent permission of local
Vietminh authorities. As they came
2333 N. HIGH ST. AT PATTERSON
into the estuary, Vietminh mor
tars opened fire in their direction.
No boats were hit, but the threat
was obvious. The boats each load
ed with families, had no choice
but to turn back.
Nearly all these refugees are
Catholic. When some 300 Catho
lics set out from a village in the
Thai Binh province, the Viet
minh barred them from using
row boats, without which it was
impossible to cross the river. In
another place, men who operate
bicycle rickshaws told the peo
ple, "If you're Catholics, we can't
Recently the International Con
trol Commission, whose respon
sibility is is to supervise carry
ing out the Geneva agreement, is
sued a statement regarding each
side of Clause 14 which gives civil
ians full freedom to change resi
dence from one zone to the other.
The Commission asked each com
mand to give "widest possible dis
semination” to this clause.
