HÀ NỘI — Two women and a man have been arrested over the last two days in two separate cases of allegedly making, storing, and spreading anti-State material, according to police.
Hà Nội police launched criminal proceedings on June 23 against Trịnh Bá Phương and Nguyễn Thị Tâm, both from Dương Nội Commune in Hà Nội's Hà Đông District.
The 35-year-old man and 48-year-old woman were accused of posting and disseminating video clips and stories containing fabricated and distorted information against the Socialist Republic of Việt Nam.
The case is subject to an ongoing investigation.
In the south-central province of Khánh Hoà, Nguyễn Thị Cẩm Thuý, 44, was taken into custody for, together with others, allegedly repeatedly defaming the State and Party via livestreaming on Facebook.
She allegedly uploaded videos in which she is seen burning the national and Party flags and cutting up photos of late President Hồ Chí Minh.
During a search of her home in Tân Quý village, Cam Thành Bắc Commune, in Cam Lâm District, police said they discovered a range of weapons, including machetes, scimitars, and knives, as well as four gas cylinders and 150 litres of petrol.
