Police are investigating an allegation against an English teacher of his sexual assault on one of his students in a province in north-central Vietnam.

Officers from the police department in Vu Quang District, Ha Tinh Province have transferred the case to their colleagues at the provincial level for a probe after receiving a report from the family of the victim in question, a sixth grader at Vu Quang Middle School.  

On June 23, a leader of the Ha Tinh Department of Education and Training said that the agency had required the Vu Quang education bureau and the school to submit a report on the alleged sexual assault.

The school is now closed for summer vacation but the education department will severely punish the teacher whenever police investigation proves him guilty, the leader said.

According to the victim’s family, the student, only identified as T., attended an after-school English class taught by 42-year-old L.D.C., the accused, on June 20. 

At night-time on the same day, T. went home with abnormal behaviors so her family asked questions but she did not answer them.

T.’s family then learned that she had been sexually assaulted by C. after receiving information from her friend’s family.

The schoolgirl’s family then reported it to local authorities and at the same time brought her to a hospital for a medical check-up, before police stepped in.
