HCMC – The HCMC police today, February 13, searched an auto testing center in Tan Binh District over suspected violations of vehicle inspection and registration regulations.
The police cordoned off the 50-05V auto inspection and registration center on Hong Ha Street for a search this morning.
In December last year, Vietnam Register suspended the operations of the auto testing center in An Phu Dong Ward, District 12, and its branch in Tan Binh District for three months for violating vehicle testing regulations.
However, the center was allowed to reopen on January 16.
The search came as the police of many cities and provinces have been probing allegations of giving and taking bribes and falsifying documents at auto testing centers and branch offices of Vietnam Register nationwide.
On February 9, the HCMC police searched a branch office of Vietnam Register in Vung Tau City and another in HCMC over their suspected violations of auto inspection and registration regulations.
To date, the HCMC police have detained 89 individuals working at auto testing facilities for taking bribes while on duty.
