HÒA BÌNH – The Hòa Bình People’s Committee on Monday temporarily stopped two companies from exploiting sand and gravel from the Đà River in Kỳ Sơn District.

The two companies are Sahara Mineral Exploitation Joint-stock Company and Hùng Yến Co Ltd.

The People’s Committee also asked the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment to join hands with concerned organisations to prepare documents about the two companies’ violations in mineral exploitation, check the quantity of sand and gravel being exploited by the two companies and monitor the situation on the ground to consider letting the companies restart their activities.

Inspectors should patrol Hợp Thành and Hợp Thịnh communes in Kỳ Sơn District in the morning and at night to receive reports from residents and ensure timely action against violations by organisations and individuals exploiting and transporting sand and gravel from the Đà River.

Earlier, last Wednesday, Nguyễn Văn Quang, chairman of Hòa Bình People’s Committee, met residents of Hợp Thịnh and Hợp Thành communes to resolve problems related to sand and gravel exploitation by the two companies.

During the meeting, many residents asked the committee to withdraw licences for sand exploitation by the two companies following their violations. – VNS
