HÀ GIANG — The Hà Giang Police on Monday prosecuted three people for high school exam cheating and forbade them from leaving their living areas.

The three people included Triệu Thị Chính and Phạm Văn Khuông, deputy directors of the Hà Giang Department of Education and Training, and Lê Thị Dung, an official with the Internal Political Guard under the Hà Giang Police.

An initial investigation of the Hà Giang Police showed that Chính, 51, was head of the jury of the Hà Giang national high school exam last year, and directly operated the team that gives marks to multiple-choice tests. She was charged with abusing her position and power to influence other people for personal gain.

Phạm Văn Khuông, 60, and Lê Thị Dung, 50, who were also connected to the case, were charged with abusing their position and power to influence other people for personal gain.

Colonel Lê Văn Canh, spokesman for the Hà Giang Police, said that the three accused people would not be allowed to leave their residential areas.

Last year, on July 23, the Hà Giang Police launched legal proceedings against and detained Nguyễn Thanh Hoài, 50, head of testing and quality assurance under the provincial education department, for abusing his power and duties to manipulate exam results.

Hoài allegedly colluded with his deputy Vũ Trọng Lương, 41, who was detained on July 20 last year for adjusting scores on 330 test papers belonging to 114 candidates in less than one day while operating a computer that stored exam results. 

Hoài gave Lương the key of the room which stored exam tests.

After the Ministry of Education and Training revealed the answers to the exam tests, Lương adjusted the exam test results and raised marks on 330 test papers.

The changed marks were different from the initial marks by one to 29.95 marks.

The investigation is continuing.  — VNS
