The requirement came after an unannounced investigation by the police.

According to the police, the BB Club – owned by Vinh Phu Restaurant at 96 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, District 3  - employed staff without contracts.

The restaurant also did not pay social insurance premiums for their workers and did not have a certificate of food safety and hygiene.

The inspection delegation made a report of the restaurant’s infringements to the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee.

This was part of the city’s police crack down on drug-related crime, which was launched nationwide from June 1 to August 31.

In related news, between August 21 to 26, a police drug crime prevention team, part of the Sea Police, joined with security forces in coastal areas off Mong Cai Town, in the northern province of Quang Ninh, and Phu Quoc Island.

They arrested 86 people and discovered, in one case, a large shipment of illegal drugs, which were transported from the northeastern provinces to Nam Dinh Province and the South, and then planned to be shipped to China.
