After receiving reports from local residents, authorities in Bao Loc City discovered three women confined in a facility owned by Nguyen Hai Ha, aged 65. Disturbingly, two of the women were found chained to windows, while the third was trembling in fear, hiding in a corner.
According to Ha, he has been caring for his half-sisters from Dong Nai Province for the past two years.
According to Dinh Cong Huyen, the deputy head of the Bao Loc Department of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs, there are no signs of abnormality observed in these women. They speak in a normal manner and provide accurate responses to questions.
Even though they have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, their ability to manage their behavior allows their caretaker to grant them the opportunity to live like any other individual.
According to authorities, the location where they were being held is deemed unhygienic and has the potential to exacerbate their condition.
The suggestion of relocating the women to a shelter or finding another relative was put forth, but Ha declined.
Ha gave his solemn assurance that he would refrain from further chaining or confining them. The Bao Loc City People's Court will now assess the case to determine which party should be granted custody of the three sisters.
