Mrs. Khanh visited Mrs. Marie-Luise Dött, Member of the German Bundestag, on May 24, 2016 in her Bundestag’s office in Berlin. She reported her and Dr. Philipp Lengsfeld, Member of the German Bundestag, that her husband is held incommunicado since his arrest. Neither his family nor his lawyer could visit him in prison. MP Dött and MP Lengsfeld shared her concerns and promised to advocate for the immediate and unconditional release of her husband.
