Mai Hoa Company at 705 in the National Highway No.20, in Lien Nghia Town in Duc Trong District was fined because it sold low quality petrol.
Before, through unscheduled visit, mobile market management team and the Lam Dong police department for economic crime investigation (PC46) and other related agencies had taken a sample of RON 92 and RON 95 gasoline for testing. Test results showed that both samples had low quality.

In addition to paying the administrative fine, the company was revoked its certificate to sell petrol in one month and it was asked to recycle the substandard gasoline.
