​Vietnamese man fined for insulting woman on Facebook

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 10:04 GMT+7

A man in Vietnam has been fined for lashing out at a woman through Facebook.

The Department of Police in Vung Tau, a beach city in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, on Wednesday imposed an administrative fine upon Nguyen Trong Tuan, 26, originally from the north-central province of Nghe An, for offending the dignity of another individual.

On November 9, officers received a denunciation letter from L.T.Y.N., 21, complaining that a Facebook account named Nguyen Tuan had insulted her in a comment.

According to the report, the ‘VungTau’ Facebook page posted an article regarding a suspect being arrested for obstruction.

Tuan’s first comment on the status included the slandering of the police officers mentioned in the article.

N. was quick to post her disagreement with Tuan’s comment, though she was met with a barrage of insults directed at her and her family.

Upset by the incident, N. reported the situation to local police officers.

Tuan was taken to the police station where he admitted to posting the offensive comments, blaming alcohol for his lapse in judgment.
