The Bac Ninh Provincial People’s Committee has fined the Yestech Vina Co., Ltd over its illegal discharge of untreated wastewater into the rainwater drainage system at the northern province’s Que Vo Industrial Zone.

The company was fined VND200 million ($8,815) and must cease further discharges.

The People’s Committee also directed Yestech Vina to install a wastewater treatment system under technical standards within two months of the date of it handing down the decision. 

The company must follow the terms of the decision within ten days. It this period elapses without further action, the company will be subject to additional legal provisions.

Yestech Vina was punished by the People’s Committee for a similar incident in April last year.

Yestech Vina is a 100 per cent South Korean-owned company, established and operating in Vietnam since February 2013.

It specializes in the manufacturing of mobile phone and smart watch components for supply to local and foreign companies, including Samsung.

Previously, Bac Ninh fined the Willtech Vina Co., Ltd, also fully South Korean-owned and specializing in producing and processing telephone components at Que Vo, VND133 million ($5,875) after it released wastewater.
