This photo was not of Le Van Tam, the man in the photo was identified as a murderer in 1997 who was sentenced to death.


In the house, there are many photos and introductions of heroes.

Le Van Tam, a hero in the French resistance war, was among heroes’ photos displayed at the memorial house.

But the photo with Le Van Tam’s name was not actually of him, a charity team discovered while visiting the school one day, said Le Phuoc Hau, the head of the Education Department in Tam Nong District.

They reported the mistake to school leaders.

After verifying that the photo was not of Le Van Tam, the man in the photo was identified as a murderer in 1997 who was sentenced to death.

The murder occurred in Tan Phuoc District in the southern province of Tiền Giang.

The school leaders admitted their fault. They did not verify the photo of the “hero” before using it, officials said.

Hau asked the leaders of Phu Xuan Primary-Secondary School to remove the photo and determine what caused the mistake.

The education department also asked local schools to check all photos in the memorial houses.

Through careful inspection, two more schools learned they also had used the wrong photos of Le VanTam, but the actual identity of the men in those photos has not yet been determined.
