QUANG BINH (VNS) — The Hung Duc Joint Stock Company has been fined VND80 million (US$4,000) by the Quang Binh People's Committee for causing environmental pollution.
In addition, the company has been asked to organise the clean-up of the environment, including of water sources and land.
The company had bought 3,000 litres of diesel for the national road 1A expansion project in the province's Quang Dong Commune, Bo Trach District, on May 16.
However, the next day the firm found that the entire quantity of the oil had leaked through a hole in the diesel barrel, seriously impacting the lives of 10 households in the neighbourhood. — VNS
