Authorities in the coastal province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau decided
Monday to fine a local company around US$10,300 for serious environmental infractions.
Vung Tau Paradise Joint Venture Company didn't register or announce its storage of toxic waste at an unauthorized site, the province government said.
It didn't transfer documents concerning the waste to authorized agencies or retrieve expired products either.
The company, which is a joint venture between Vung Tau International Tourism Company and Taiwan's Paradise Development and Investment, was fined a total of VND208.5 million.
The violations were discovered in August of this year by inspectors from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
