Vietnam's Northern Airport Authority has fined a janitor VND7.5 million (US$337) for stealing a British passenger’s purse at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport.
Do Thi Lien, 54, was penalized for failing to turn in the purse the passenger had left behind, Cong An Nhan Dan newspaper reported.
Wheatley Sophie, 25, had reported to the Noi Bai Airport Security Center that she had lost her purse when waiting for a flight to Bangkok, the paper reported without specifying the date.
Security officers went through videos recorded on the terminal’s CCTVs, which showed that Lien had found the purse.
In October 2015 the Northern Airport Authority had fined another janitor the same amount for stealing a phone a passenger had dropped at the airport.
