Update 08/01/2012: According to the news portal Viet Nam News, Quang has been "discharged from the army for causing the death of two endangered langurs" and his accomplices have "received disciplinary warnings". Although Vietnamese law states that an offender can be jailed for up to three years for killing an endangered species such as the grey-shanked douc langur, there was no mention of further punishment for Quang.
