Leaders of the Department of Public Security of Soc Trang Province in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region issued a decision on Friday afternoon to strip three policemen of their titles due to their use of violence against a motorcyclist.

Captain Chau Minh Trung, Lieutenant Nguyen Quang Thai, and Senior Lieutenant Doan Tan Phong had their ‘People’s Police’ rank removed by Lam Thanh Sol, director of the provincial public security department, according to Cong An Nhan Dan (People’s Police) newspaper.

Captain Hua Truong An had his rank lowered while Captain Tran Minh Doi was given a discipline warning.

When the five officers were patrolling Nam Song Hau Street during the Sene Dolta festival, one of the most important religious events for Khmer ethnic people every year, at around 3:00 pm on September 25, they detected two citizens traveling on a motorcycle against the traffic direction.

The officers attempted to pull the two citizens over to check the driver’s license, but the latter refused to stop their motorbike and accelerated to flee the scene, prompting a police chase.

After catching up with the motorcyclists before a warehouse, Trung, Thai, and Phong violently roughed up the driver.

A CCTV camera installed at the warehouse captured the entire physical attack.

The officers then escorted the two motorcyclists to the local police station.

The footage from the CCTV camera later circulated online and stirred a public backlash.
