HA NOI (VNS) — A factory producing steel electric poles and metal plated components in Ha Noi's Me Linh District was fined VND100 million (US$4,700) for improperly transferring dangerous waste.

The factory, a subsidiary of Power Construction and Installation Company Ltd No 4 that began operating in 2006, was found to have allowed unqualified organisations and individuals to dispose of their industrial waste.

The Ha Noi People's Committee also asked the factory to repair any damage caused by their actions by January 8. — VNS
