The People’s Committee of Phu Quoc City, a popular tourist destination in Kien Giang Province, southern Vietnam, on Monday dismantled six bungalows which were built illegally above the water within a marine protection area.
Huynh Van Dinh, head of the Natural Resources and Environment Bureau of Phu Quoc, said the People’s Committee of the city's Ham Ninh Commune on October 11 last year made a report on the illegal construction of the facilities.
Covering more than 1,200 square meters, the bungalows belong to N.L.V., residing in Ham Ninh Commune.
On November 7, 2022, the Phu Quoc People’s Committee issued a decision to ask V. to pull down the bungalows but he failed to comply with the requirement.
“Local authorities dismantled six bungalows of V. today and will continue the dismantlement on many other illegally-built constructions, including 79 villas in Duong Bao Hamlet, Duong To District,” Dinh said.
Ham Ninh Commune is home to many bungalows which were constructed without licenses, directly affecting the marine protected area.
On October 31, 2022, Huynh Quang Hung, chairman of the Phu Quoc People’s Committee, said that more than 10 people were mobilized to help M.T.D., a local resident, dismantle eight illicitly-built bungalows with a total area of 524.6 square meters encroaching on the Phu Quoc marine protection area.
