Over 2,000 hectares of natural forest in Dak Nong have been destroyed.



Le Xuan Bao, former director of Quang Duc Forestry Co. Ltd., will be prosecuted for irresponsible management of the forest area, resulting in serious consequences.

According to initial investigations, in 2010, the province handed over 12,301 hectares of forest to the Quang Duc company to carry out forestry protection activities including growing, preserving and managing the forest areas. 

However, Bao and the former head of the company’s forest protection and management board, Thai Thanh Tam, were irresponsible in the leadership of the company. 

As a result, more than 2,000 hectares were destroyed and encroached upon.

Tam will also be prosecuted alongside Bảo, and faces the same charges.

The investigation is ongoing.
