Nguyen Huu Dang, 27, Nguyen Van Trieu, 26, and Pham Van Trung, 28, were trainees at the centre. On September 14, they incited more than 300 former drug addicts voluntarily staying at the centre to escape, despite efforts by staff to dissuade them.
Police used loudspeakers to advise them to return to the centre and not gather in large numbers on the street.
By 7 pm, they had dispersed completely. More than 200 went back to the centre and the others returned home. — VNS
