PHU YEN — The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of south-central Phu Yen Province will revoke VND836 million (US$40,000) in Government aid given to 26 fishing vessels found ineligible for assistance.
An evaluation conducted by the local agency revealed that 26 out of 33 vessels in Tuy An District provided false documents to get the aid. They had previously received eligible aid from the provincial People's Committee.
They were denounced by other fishermen using the same fishing ground.
Serious punishments would be imposed on the violators, said the department. —VNS
