VietNamNet Bridge - Five police officers who were caught in a video clip posted on Youtube humiliating two naked prostitutes in the northern Quang Ninh Province have been demoted.
Lieutenant Hoang Ha Long, second lieutenant Dao Duy Long and sergeant major Nguyen Thanh Tung were demoted two ranks.
Senior lieutenant Tran Van Hoan, who videotaped the clip with his cellphone, and sergeant major Ha Trong Huan were both demoted by one rank. Meanwhile sergeant major Nguyen Manh Hung was issued a written disciplinarian warning and transferred to another office.
Originally intended to be shared among themselves, the clip found its way onto YouTube last month, showing the five yelling insults at two unclothed girls who were trying to cover themselves.
In the clip, one of the girls sits on the bed and writes a report completely naked, while an officer in plain clothes repeatedly shouts at the other to stand up and extend her arms for him to take a picture.
Two other officers are seen writing something and all three say humiliating things to the women, making them cry.
A half-clad tattooed man, apparently the prostitutes’ customer, sits alone, saying nothing.
The clip spurred a public outcry, prompting central police to step in to investigate. The uncouth policemen were found to be on duty during a bust into a hotel in Quang Ninh’s Cam Pha Town last June.
Cam Pha is notorious for rampant prostitution.
