Meanwhile, the ministry has asked cities and provinces in the region to review land-related documents to ensure compliance with the Land Law, as well as take drastic measures to punish violations.
The ministry's move is in response to the Prime Minister's directive earlier this month, following an unlawful land seizure in the northern city of Hai Phong's Tien Lang District. — VNS
