AFP, HANOI

He was eased out of the politburo in 1982 and left politics officially in 1991.

Yet he continued to speak out until well into his 90s about sensitive issues such as corruption and bauxite mining, and his popularity, particularly among the young, remained undiminished.

He is survived by Dang Bich Ha, his wife since 1949, and four children.
