CẦN THƠ — The Cần Thơ City Police on Wednesday asked the municipal People’s Procuracy to prosecute nine traffic inspectors for receiving bribes.
Seven out of the nine people are former leaders and members of traffic inspection teams in different districts in the city, such as the Thốt Nốt, Cái Răng, Phong Điền and Ninh Kiều Districts. The remaining two people worked as intermediaries between traffic inspectors and bribe givers.
The nine people received bribes from 135 organisations and individuals; 260 people are related to the case.
The municipal police has evidence that the inspectors took advantage of their position to receive money from organisations and individuals for looking the other way.
The total bribes reached VNĐ4 billion (US$177,700). The people giving the bribes are from different provinces and cities such as Đồng Nai, HCM City, Long An, Tiền Giang and Vĩnh Long. — VNS
