BINH PHUOC — Nguyen Van Ngoc, director of Ta Thiet Protective Forest's Management Board in northern Binh Phuoc Province's Loc Ninh District, has been prosecuted for alleged corruption in forestry management, according to a decision from the provincial people's procuracy.

Ngoc allowed people from local households to use dozens of hectares of forest for crops, causing serious losses to the protective forest in upstream areas.

He also joined with illegal loggers to cut down hundreds of rare and precious trees. — VNS
