Authorities in the central highlands province of Lam Dong said Thursday they have fined a local silk manufacturer over VND400 million (US$20,518) for environmental violations.

 

Bao Loc Silk Manufacturing Company (Vikotek) in Bao Loc Town had failed to submit its environmental protection plans to related agencies, released untreated wastewater directly into the environment, and exploited water resources without obtaining the license and paying required fees.

 

The company, run by South Korean Chung In San, was also ordered to pay more than VND25 million in environmental protection fees that it owed for the period between January 2004 and October 2010, local officials said.
