Public servants at the Ministry of Justice are banned from drinking during lunch on workdays under a recent regulation.

In recent times, many staff members at the ministry have assumed alcohol during working hours and during lunch and that damaged the reputation and manner of the ministry’s public servants, according to the Minister of Justice Ha Hung Cuong.

So the ban is aimed at making public servants become more responsible at work, Cuong added.

Also under the regulation, canteens are banned from selling beers and other alcoholic beverages to participants of conferences, seminars, or guest receiving, ect…

Violators of the rules would be reprimanded, warned or dismissed, the minister stressed.

The prohibition is also applied to public servants in Quang Nam and Binh Thuan provinces.

Nguyen Thanh Nam, director of Binh Thuan province’s Interior Department, said violators of this regulation would be named on the provincial news portal as a warning.
