HCM CITY (VNS) — Police in Thu Duc District yesterday detained and prosecuted two babysitters after they were caught beating children at an illegal childcare centre in Hiep Binh Phuoc Ward.

This follows a video clip being posted online on Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper, which has caused a public outcry due to the violent acts committed against the children.

The babysitters were identified as a 19-year-old Nguyen Le Thien Ly from southern Kien Giang Province and 31-year-old Le Thi Dong Phuong from District 8 of HCM City.

The centre did not have an authorised license and has been fined several times by local authorities.

After the arrests, the centre was ordered to stop all childcare activities and local authorities have launched an investigation into all childcare centres in the area. — VNS
