“There was lots of cursing at the woman [Jun]. The wife said she had been married for ten years and that the beauty spa owner had destroyed her marriage. There were a group of women helping her. She pulled her hair and slapped her. She put chili powder over her body in the middle of the High Street.
“The victim showed no resistance, she just was on the ground and received it. I think she was taken to hospital because of burns caused by the powder.”
However, by the time authorities arrived, everyone involved had already left.
Nguyen Chi Phuong, head of Thanh Hoa police station, condemned the barbaric act and vowed to deal with the case according to the law. He added that the attacker could face several charges, including intentional injury and public disorder.
He also urged married couples who are no longer affectionate to respect each other and settle matters through a divorce.
“If they are no longer affectionate they should respect each other and divorce in accordance with the law. If there are grounds to prove that the husband shows signs of violating the marriage and family structure, there are many legal ways to settle the case, such as making an application to the local administration or the police office for settlement,” Phuong said.
Jun is recovering from her injuries.
