In Uncategorized on March 24, 2010 at 5:04 am

A high school in Hanoi has issued penalties for several students who participated in the recent beating of a female classmate. The incident, involving students from Tran Nhan Tong High School, was caught on camera and circulated on the Internet last week.

The most severe penalty was handed to students Vu Ngoc Diep and Chu Minh Huyen. The two students have been suspended from school for the rest of the school year.


Diep and Huyen are seen in the minute-long video clip beating fellow student Nguyen Quynh Anh, and are accused of encouraging others to join in and film the incident. Students pulled Anh’s hair, punched her and kicked her in the head.


If the suspended students engage in any negative behavior next year, they will be permanently expelled.


Anh, the victim, and another student On Minh Huyen received warnings in front of the entire school for their involvement in the incident and for being dishonest with police who investigated the case.


Students Ngo Manh Hung and Trinh Minh Tu, who are seen in the video watching the fight, also received reprimands for failing to alert adults or intervene.


Student Dang Quang Manh, who posted the video on the Internet was given a warning.

China slaps penalties on US, Russian steel

In World on December 11, 2009 at 4:16 am

China said Thursday it will impose penalties on steel imported from the United States and Russia, claiming the countries were allowing it to be sold at a cut price.


The preliminary ruling requires importers of grain-oriented electrical steel, which is widely used in the power industry, to pay deposits from Friday, the commerce ministry said in a statement on its website.


“The domestic grain-oriented electrical steel industry suffered material damages” due to the dumping, the statement said following an investigation.


Dumping occurs when a foreign company sells a product in another market at less than normal value.


The ruling is the latest in a series of disputes between China and the United States, which have heightened trade tensions between the economic giants.










Companies will have to pay a deposit based on the difference — up to 25 percent — between the normal value of the steel and the cut price, the ministry said.


China also will charge for the first time an anti-subsidy deposit after the probe found US companies received government subsidies on grain-oriented electrical steel.


The deposits will be repaid to the importers if the preliminary ruling is overturned, according to Chinese rules.


Simmering tensions between Washington and Beijing boiled over in September when the Obama administration announced it would slap duties on Chinese-made tyres to protect US producers.


Since then, the world’s number one and three economies have traded a series of accusations of unfair trade practices.


In one of its retaliatory moves, Beijing lodged a complaint at the World Trade Organization and launched a probe into possible unfair trade practices involving imports of US car products and chicken meat.
