Update: August, 27/2012 - 09:04

HA NOI – Ha Noi will still pilot new identity cards that include the holder's parental names in three districts next month, including Hoang Mai, Tay Ho and Tu Liem, despite criticism.

The Ministry of Public Security last week decided to postpone issuing new identity cards following public concerns over citizens' privacy.

The replacement of identity cards in the capital city alone is expected to cost US$38 million. — VNS
