VIETNAM NEWSPAPERS SHUT DOWN FOR REPORTING POLYMER BANKNOTE PROBLEMS

According to a news release, "The Committee to Protect Journalists
condemns the suspension of two newspapers in Vietnam that reported
on corruption and printing problems with the country’s new non-paper
banknotes. The Ministry of Culture and Information slapped a one-month
ban on two small newspapers and was considering disciplinary measures
against other, more widely read newspapers in connection with their
critical reporting on the new notes, according to international
news reports."

"Local media recently ran a series of articles highlighting misprints
and other problems with the new plastic polymer banknotes, which
replaced paper notes. Some published allegations that the son of a
high-level banking official had profited from the printing contract."
