The wife of a commune senior official in the Mekong Delta of Bac Lieu has lodged a complaint against her husband, saying he assulated her and their children for almost a year.
Nguyen Thi My Hong, 46, accused Nguyen Van Luc, the deputy chairman of Vinh My B Commune People's Committee, of frequently beating her and their children with tree trunks. Hong said she was hospitalized several times after the beatings.
Hong called police to her house after being beaten, but when the police arrived, Luc told the police officers to let him solve his family problems by himself.
Hong's neighbors, who were outraged by the beating, called Thanh Nien to make a report as well.
Hong said Luc started beating her after she complained about an affair he had with a local woman.
Long Quang Dung, Party secretary of Vinh My B Commune, told Thanh Nien the case has been reported to Party inspectors.
