HCMC – Four technicians at the 20-09D auto inspection and registration center in Thai Nguyen Province have been arrested for allegedly falsifying auto test documents.
The police of the northern province today, February 9, said that investigators decided on February 3 to file charges against the falsification of documents at the auto testing center in Son Cam Commune in Thai Nguyen City.
The local media reported that preliminary investigation results showed that the four technicians used software to edit photos and erase certain problems to make it possible to issue inspection certificates to vehicle owners.
Between January 4 and 17, the Thai Nguyen Department of Transport conducted unannounced checks on legal compliance on vehicle testing at nine centers.
The department found the 20-09D auto testing center violating the regulations, thereby suspending its operations for two months.
The police have so far searched 32 vehicle registration and inspection centers nationwide and pressed charges against 248 individuals working at these facilities for taking bribes, falsifying documents, and manufacturing, trading, and providing equipment and software for illegal purposes.
