Police in Ha Dong District, Hanoi said on Friday that they had started legal proceedings against a former commune-level deputy chairman for illegal possession of narcotics.

Pham Minh Cong, 40, in Chuong My District and Dang Dinh Hoan, 44, in Thanh Tri District were caught performing a transaction of 0.33 grams of heroin in Ha Dong at the beginning of April.

Cong was the former deputy chairman of Hong Phong Commune in Chuong My, while Hoan said he had sourced the heroin from someone in Thanh Tri District for reselling.

Cong was absent from work for many days in January before submitting his resignation on February 3 for health reasons.

The People’s Committee of Hong Phong Commune then transferred Cong’s resignation letter to the Chuong My authority.

The committee also summoned Cong for three times, all of which he failed to show up, before convening a meeting on April 3, during which 100 percent of competent attendants voted to remove Cong from his post.

The police also informed the People’s Committee of Hong Phong Commune and relevant agencies about Cong’s arrest on April 7.
