VINH LONG (VNS) — Vinh Long Building Materials Joint-Stock Company was told on Tuesday to compensate four households for causing landslides that damaged their fish breeding cages.

The company, located in the southern province of Vinh Long's An Binh Commune, Long Ho District, must pay more than VND440 million (US$20,900) in compensation.

The households suffered losses totaling more than VND1.1 billion ($52,300) in 2012 when the landslide caused their fish cages to slide into the Tien River. The residents believed the landslide was caused by the company's sand exploitation and sued the firm when it refused to compensate them. The Vinh Long People's Court concluded that the landslide was the company's fault. — VNS
