HCMC – Doan Van Hieu, director of the 29-13D vehicle registration and inspection center in Hanoi City’s Dong Anh District, has been detained for allegedly accepting bribes.
The police of the district pressed the same charges against five others at the auto testing center today, March 10. They are the center’s deputy director Pham Van Tai and four technicians: Hoang Trung Khai, Nguyen Thanh Dat, Tran Thanh Dat, and Ngo Hoang Anh.
Three days ago, the police searched another auto testing center, 29-03V, in Lang Thuong Ward, Dong Da District in Hanoi.
The capital city has 31 auto testing centers but only eight remain operational and are overwhelmed by the huge demand for auto testing services.
In a related development, two auto testing centers in Hanoi, 29-03S in Nam Tu Liem District and 29-14D in the Thanh Oai industrial cluster, resumed operations this morning.
To date, the police in 33 cities and provinces have filed charges against nearly 380 individuals and searched 66 auto testing centers over charges of bribery and falsification of auto testing documents.
