A South Korean manager of a company in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam has been suspended during the investigation into his assault on a Vietnamese employee that resulted in her hospitalization, a local labor union official said on Tuesday afternoon.

As per the suspension decision announced by OT Motor Vina Co. Ltd at the Nhon Trach 6 Industrial Park in Dong Nai’s Nhon Trach District, its purchasing and sales manager Seon Chang Hwa will not go to work for a month, pending the investigation results from police officers.

His victim, 32-year-old Nguyen Thi Anh Thu, who is his subordinate at the company, is still receiving hospital treatment.

The executive board of OT Motor Vina visited and made an apology to Thu shortly after the violent bodily harm, which was reported by Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper last week.

Seon assaulted Thu, punching her in the face, kicking her, grabbing her by the hair, and dragging her about one meter, after a conflict broke out between them during a discussion at 8:15 am at the company on February 28.

The incident took place in front of almost all office staff and was recorded by surveillance cameras.

Thu, who just finished her maternity leave and is raising a seven-month-old baby, was badly injured and taken to Long Thanh Regional General Hospital for emergency treatment after the assault.

After being summoned to the police station at the Nhon Trach Industrial Park, Seon admitted to hitting Thu.
