The delegation visited Hoa Son Detention Center and Tan Hoa School No.3 which is teaching and educating young people with bad behaviors of provinces and cities in the central region.

They visited detention rooms, accommodations, studying and working places of guilty persons. Varied changes and tones of feelings can be seen on their faces.

“The visit helped me to realize the value of life” said Nguyen Viet Hung, 17, who left school when he was in the 8th grade and addicted to online games. He has been placed under house arrest of the local authorities because of breaking the law.

“I addicted to online games after leaving school and then became a crime. I lost my future. I hope you will not lose your life and torment your friends, teachers and family” Truong Ba Lien, student of Tan Hoa School No.3, advised.

“The city’s government is always interested in you. I believe that you can choose the best things for your future, and will give up the bad and become a good citizen after this special visit” Danang Party Committee Secretary Nguyen Ba Thanh said at a talk with young people on the same day.

Thai protesters back down after live fire threat

In Uncategorized on April 20, 2010 at 9:45 am

BANGKOK (AFP) – Thailand’s anti-government protesters cancelled plans to march on Bangkok’s financial hub Tuesday, as authorities warned they would face tear gas and live weapons fire in any fresh clashes.

Ten days after 25 people were killed and 800 injured in a failed attempt to dislodge the red-shirted demonstrators, the government said it was determined to end four weeks of rallies but would not give a date for the crackdown.

The army also toughened its stance on the demonstrators who have paralysed parts of the capital and forced major shopping centres to close, wreaking havoc on the economy, and the tourism industry in particular.

“Security forces will begin by firing tear gas and if they cannot stop protesters, then soldiers will start taking decisive action with live bullets,” army spokesman Colonel Sunsern Kaewkumnerd said.

Sunsern targeted shadowy black-clad provocateurs accused of kicking off the April 10 violence, who have been disowned by both sides of Thailand’s political divide, referring to them as “terrorists”.

“We have received intelligence from the field that terrorists are armed with hand grenades, molotov cocktails and acid,” he said after a meeting chaired by army chief Anupong Paojinda.

Suthep Thaugsuban, the deputy prime minister in charge of national security, also warned that the troops deployed in downtown Bangkok were equipped with weapons and live ammunition and were authorised to fire in self-defence.

“The government intends to enforce the law, but that does not mean it will happen today or tomorrow,” he said of looming plans to shut down the movement.

“Everything will be carefully implemented to lessen damage… I cannot say when.”

The Red Shirts, who are encamped in Bangkok’s retail heartland, had threatened to march Tuesday to the nearby Silom financial district but were thwarted when armed troops and riot police descended Monday.

“Red Shirt protesters will not march into Silom Road because the government has already sent ten of thousands of armed soldiers to occupy the road,” said leader Nattawut Saikuar.

The deployment saw rolls of razor wire rolled out along the financial strip, which is packed with bank headquarters and corporate towers, and knots of soldiers take up positions on overhead walkways.

Nattawut said the Reds would not make any alternative plans for a march, but would focus on bolstering numbers at their rally base which stretches along four kilometres (2.5 miles) of some of Bangkok’s major thoroughfares.

“Before we go into the big battle we have to strengthen our own camp because the military will soon attack us,” Nattawut said, adding that they expect the army to make its move some time before next Monday.

The crowds at the Reds’ camp, a formidable logistical base that offers food, entertainment and facilities for washing and sleeping, have hit 100,000 in the past but dwindled Tuesday to 6,500 in a usual mid-week lull.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, who is resisting calls to stand down and announce fresh elections, said the government knows “the people are suffering” but added that it could not be rushed into taking action.

“Both the government and the people want this to end quickly but we have to think about many factors,” he said on television late Monday. “We have to minimise the damage and do this effectively.”

The protesters are mainly supporters of former premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a 2006 coup and is now living in exile to avoid a jail sentence for corruption.

The Reds say that Abhisit’s government is illegitimate because it came to power in a parliamentary vote, not a popular election, and that it is the tool of Thailand’s palace, military and bureaucratic circles.

A rival faction, the elite-backed “Yellow Shirts”, vowed Sunday to take action if the government fails to deal with the protesters within a week, raising fears of new clashes.

Hospital staff rebuked for pronouncing live baby dead

In Vietnam Health on December 3, 2009 at 2:35 am

The discipline council of central Ninh Thuan Province’s General Hospital cut a doctor’s salary December 1 after she falsely pronounced a newborn infant dead. Another doctor and two nurses were also reprimanded for the incident which occurred last month.

Dr. Tran Thi Hong Hoa, head of the night shift on November 11 at the hospital’s Obstetrics Department, had her salary decreased while Dr. Nguyen Thi Thanh Xuan and nurses Le Thi Hong Van and Nguyen Thi Tuyet received warnings.

The staff admitted they had acted hastily in concluding the baby was dead and accepted the disciplinary action.

The newborn son of Truong Thi Thanh Truc was pronounced dead November 11. Staff asked his relatives to bury the infant’s body, but to their shock, the family realized the baby was still alive after bringing it home for a funeral.

They rushed the baby back to the hospital but despite the father’s desperate pleas, staff reportedly refused to treat the child saying he would likely die as the infant was born prematurely weighing just 1.2 kilograms. It was not until Ms. Truc’s husband flew into a rage that staff agreed to start resuscitation efforts. 

The baby was later transferred to the Ho Chi Minh City-based Pediatric Hospital No.1 and is reportedly improving.

In response to public opinion that the punishment for the staff is not adequate, Director of the provincial Health Department Le Minh Dinh said his division would reconsider the discipline after conducting an investigation.

The hospital council will submit its decision to the Health Department for an official recommendation.
