HÀ NỘI — HCM City’s Supreme Court yesterday decided to cancel the 18-month probation verdict of the court of appeal of Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province for Nguyễn Khắc Thuỷ on charges of sexually abusing children aged six and 11 on May 11.

The court also determined to keep the verdict that the People’s Court of Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province gave to 78-year-old Thuỷ at its first trial, sentencing Thuỷ to three years in prison for sexually abusing children in July 2017.

The move came after the probation verdict, issued in an appeal court, sparked anger around the country. Many thought the verdict was not harsh enough for the pain Thuỷ caused the children.

The appeal court was convened after Thuỷ submitted an appeal against the charge.— VNS
