Two forest rangers in a national park in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak were sacked Saturday for protecting illegal loggers, and another was demoted.
Tran Van Thanh, the interim director of Yok Don Park, said the park had dismissed a chief ranger of a station and his deputy, and demoted another deputy, Vietnam News Agency reported.
The three had let loggers chop down many rare trees without doing anything to stop them, he said.
Last month 15 trees were felled in their area but they only reported five, he said.
But the identities of the three officials are not known.
