QUANG BINH (VNS) – The People's Committee of Dong Hoi City yesterday decided to slap a VND22.5 million (US$1,000) fine on the owner of an unlicenced private kindergarten, where an 1-year-old boy was found abused earlier this month.
The mother of the 1-year-old boy attending the kindergarten found evidences that her child was abused by nurses working in the facility on Monday. In a followup investigation by local police, the nurses admitted that they had used towels to tie up the child and stuff his mouth to keep him silent during afternoon naptime.
Tran Thi Thuy Hang, owner of the Son Ca Kindergarten, will also have to close her facility.
The provincial police is now conducting an official investigation. — VNS
