A Hanoi woman has been probed for torturing her own daughter, while her boyfriend investigated for raping the young girl.

Police in Ha Dong District, Hanoi on Sunday arrested and initiated legal proceedings against Hoang Thi Thu Huyen, 34, for torturing her daughter and Pham Thanh Tung, 31, for raping an under-16-year-old person.

The arrest was previously approved by the Ha Dong District People’s Procuracy.

Tung was taken into custody for four months to facilitate the investigation, while Huyen was released on bail to be able to raise her young child.

The woman was also indicted for illegal trade of narcotics in a separate case.

According to preliminary information, Huyen lives with her 12-year-old daughter H.H.B. and a younger son at their home in Ha Dong District.

Tung is Huyen’s boyfriend and has stayed at Huyen’s place since early 2020.

The two recently had a son, who is currently about one month old.

From May 2020 to January 2021, Tung forced B. to have sex with him on multiple occasions when Huyen was not at home.

The man threatened to beat the young girl if she tried to resist or tell other people.

B. also said her mother often hit her with water pipes, electric wires, or bamboo sticks whenever she was disobedient.

Huyen was aware that B. was raped by Tung, but that was just another reason for her to continue torturing B., the victim stated.

On January 25, B.’s aunt acknowledged the incidents and decided to take B. and her younger stepbrother home for further care.

The case was also reported to police officers.

According to B.’s aunt, Huyen has had five children with five different men. She was only legally married to the first man.

Further investigation is ongoing.
