HÀ NỘI — A traffic policeman in Hà Nội was suspended from his job after kicking a motorbike that was travelling in the wrong direction, as seen in a two-minute video clip posted on YouTube and Facebook.

The video shows the police officer rushing to the middle of Xã Đàn Street to stop a motorbike speeding in the wrong direction. As the motorbike passes by, he raises his right leg, causing the vehicle to crash into the median strip.

A leader of the Hà Nội Police Department confirmed that the policeman had “raised his right leg”. The department said the officer was a member of Team 3 of the city’s Traffic Police.

Lê Tú, head of Team 3, said the motorcyclists had crashed into the strip but the driver, Nguyễn Văn Tuấn, 20, and a young female passenger were uninjured. Traffic police said they fled after being signaled to stop and were not wearing helmets.

Đinh Thanh Thảo, deputy chief of the city’s Traffic Police, said on July 19 that the officer had been ordered to report on the case and that an investigation had been launched. The officer’s identity has been withheld. “We will strictly punish any officer who commits wrongdoings,” he said. — VNS
