The transfer of leadership will occur on May 13, and no later than May 18, Kiet must go. State media personnel have been told.

According to local sources, news leaked via state media journalists indicates that Archbishop Joseph Ngo Quang Kiet is going to resign in the next few days following the roadmap sketched to the Vatican by the Vietnamese government.

Reliable state media journalists whose duty is to describe the archbishop’s resignation as a glory victory of the regime in the international stage told Catholics on Monday that Hanoi local officials have organized a big party to celebrate the victory this weekend.

State media journalists have reportedly been told to use this opportunity to smash harder on the shaken trust towards the Vatican of Vietnamese Catholics and hence weaken their resistance against demands of local governments on properties of the Church and individuals.

Archbishop Joseph Ngo has not commented on the news. However, movements inside the archbishopric office indicate the news is reliable.

This would be a very sad chapter in the history of the Church in Vietnam.
