DA NANG (VNS) — The central city of Da Nang's investigative police have arrested four people for violating forest exploitation and protection regulations in the special-use Ba Na-Nui Chua zone.

Colonel Tran Phuoc Huong from the city's public security department said four Ca Nhong ranger station employees in Quang Nam Province were arrested for failing to report illegal logging last year.

He said the arrested people – Kieu Ngoc Quy, 60; Kieu Ngoc Trung, 35; Pham Phu Cuong; and Nguyen Van An – discovered 43cu.m of cut timber in Quang Nam and Da Nang last October.

The endangered timber species Hopea pierrei and Afzelia xylocarpa were cut and processed illegally, but the rangers did not report the crime to the ranger administration. — VNS
