HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Transport has ordered the Directorate for Roads of Việt Nam to revoke the cards of two traffic inspectors in central Hà Tĩnh Province for allegedly taking bribes.
The two inspectors, Võ Văn Tự, 50, and Hồ Văn Thiết, 35, work for the provincial Road Management Division No 2.
On August 24, the provincial police department caught red-handed two inspectors receiving VNĐ5 million (US$224) from Trần Đình Hùng, an employee of the Hà Tĩnh-based Khải Hoàng Investment and Mining Joint Stock Company.
Previously, the inspectors stopped two trucks of the company carrying goods beyond the permitted loading capacity. The inspectors asked Hùng to give them VNĐ5 million ($224) to ignore the violations.
Local police have remanded the two suspects in custody to investigate the case further. — VNS
