An enraged wife in Vietnam dished a serving of her own justice after stripping her husband’s alleged mistress naked on the street and dousing her body with fish sauce and chili powder.
The incident occurred around 10 p.m. on June 12 and was witnessed by several pedestrians, according to Vietnamese media.
The alleged mistress, 30-year-old Giang Jun, was working at her beauty spa in Thanh Hóa when the unidentified wife barged in and accused her of having an affair with her husband.
It did not take long before the vengeful wife dragged Jun by the hair, out of her spa and straight onto the street.
There, the wife stripped her naked before pouring fish sauce and chili powder on her body.
According to witness David Pam, the wife claimed that she was married for 10 years and was aided by a group of women.
Daily Mail quoted Pam as saying:
“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.
