“Suspect Nguyễn Hữu Tấn used a paper knife to commit suicide in the detention centre,”  Deputy Head of Vĩnh Long Police, Phạm Văn Ngân said.

On Tuesday, the Investigation Security Body of the provincial police conducted an urgent search and arrested Tấn, to investigate the propaganda against the Socialist Republic of Việt Nam in accordance with the Article 88 of the Penal Code.

On Wednesday, while working with the police, Tấn asked for a cigarette and a cup of water to drink. The investigative official left the office for a moment, Tấn took advantage of the situation to search for a paper knife kept inside the investigator’s bag to commit suicide by cutting his neck blood vessels.

The provincial police then invited Tấn’s father and wife to come to examine the autopsy and assisted the family to finish other procedures to bring him home in Bình Minh Commune for a funeral.

The provincial police will continue investigating into the case.
