According to the People's Committee of the Mekong Delta province, they have requested leaders at the An Giang Stone Mining and Processing Company to report about a alcohol drinking competition which was said to have been held at the company on August 16.
Photos of a leader of the company awarding two winning cups of the competition to two staff went viral.
Speaking about the incident, the company's director, Nguyen Tan Danh, said that the competition was held just for fun after a party at the company which was attended by leaders of districts and communes in the area.
"I didn't think that the event attracted such attention from the public," he said. "But I would take responsibilities for organising this illegal activity in the company."
The National Assembly and government have called on local people, especially party and state officials to cut down on the use of alcohol. Dtinews
