She then worked on migration at a national level in Italy and then at a European level as part of Caritas Europa’s migration commission.
Quyen received a doctorate in laws at Rome University. She got married with an Italian and they had one child who takes her surname.
Ngo Dinh Nhu and his wife Tran Le Xuan, who passed away at 87 in Rome last April, had two sons Ngo Dinh Trac and Ngo Dinh Quynh and two daughters Ngo Dinh Le Thuy and Ngo Dinh Le Quyen.
Le Thuy also died in an accident in Longjumeau, France at the age of 22.
