BAC KAN — Nguyen Van Khanh, director of the Ngan Son power station in the northern mountain province of Bac Kan, has been suspended for allegedly supplying power to illegal gold miners.
Inspectors from the provincial People's Committee discovered large electric cables running from the Pac Lang 3 station to illegal underground gold mines. The capacity of the station had also been increased to provide the extra power.
Bac Kan power corporation has now limited the use of electricity in the area to lighting only. — VNS
