ĐỒNG NAI – The Đồng Nai Province Police have decided to dismiss two officers of the Nhơn Trạch District Police from their duties for the wrongful arrest of a local woman.
Colonel Nguyễn Văn Thọ, head of the Advisor Division and spokesman of the provincial police, made the announcement today.
The two police officers are Senior Lieutenant-Colonel Trương Quốc Hiếu, deputy head of the Nhơn Trạch District Police, and Major Nguyễn Văn Sơn, deputy head of the district police’s investigation police team.
After receiving the notice of dismissal, Hiếu also received the decision on retirement.
In April, Nguyễn Thị Ánh Ngọc, a resident of Phước An Commune, Nhơn Trạch District, reported to police that she and her family had been beaten by several forest managers.
Ngọc was then temporarily seized for opposing the authorities on duty.
However, investigations showed that this action was without justification.
