A commune Party unit in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Phuoc has recommended disciplinary action against its secretary after investigations confirmed that he had an affair with a married woman.
The investigation was launched after the woman's 51-year-old husband, identified only as Bui, complained that he had caught his wife and Nguyen Quang Sinh, also the local commune chairman, having sex in a hotel on May 3, news website VnExpress reported.
In a statement to local authorities, however, the 49-year-old chairman denied having an affair with the woman, who is head of a village women's association.
But Bui said Sinh had "gone down on his knees asking me to forgive him" many times and admitted that the affair had been going on since 2004.
Elsewhere, in Soc Trang Province in the Mekong Delta, authorities are investigating a woman's accusation that her boss had sexually "humiliated" her after a karaoke party where she had got drunk.
The woman, who has already sought to resign her job at the Soc Trang Clean Water and Environment Hygiene Center, said she had gone to a karaoke parlor with her director Nguyen Thanh Dung last week and had dozed off drunk.
She knew nothing until waking up and finding herself naked next to him, she claimed.
Dung has denied doing anything except going to the karaoke place with her.
There is no mention of rape in her accusation or if there were other people at the party.
