The official made the request as a fake Facebook account usedthe name of the commission to post articles calling on the public to stayvigilant against tricks that support traditional fish sauce, aiming to destroydomestic production. These articles have received many likes and comments,including inciting contents.

“The Party Central Committee’s Commission for Information andEducation has not used such Facebook account”, Ngoc affirmed, stressing thatthe case must be clarified. 

Over the past time, many social network accounts were createdin the names of agencies, units, organisations and individuals, including thecommission. 

The falsification has adversely affected the operation oforganisations and individuals concerned, and violated legal regulations oninformation using and publication. 

Such deeds need to be strongly condemned in order to makeinformation popularisation on social networks healthy, he said. 

Ngoc urged press agencies to participate in the struggle andreject false and distorted information, especially one on sensitive and complexissues that greatly impact people’s life. 

These efforts will help readers understand and make rightchoices, he said.
