PHU THO (VNS) — Environmental Police from the Ministry of Public Security have fined Miwon Viet Nam VND515 million (US$24,000) for discharging wastewater into the environment.

The Korean company, based in the northern province of Phu Tho, discharged wastewater that exceeds the permitted level by 10 times.

The company, which produces monosodium glutamate, food seasoning and flavouring products, must suspend operations for three months and deal with the pollution within six months.

In April, the provincial People's Committee imposed administrative penalties on the company for the same violation. — VNS
