Trinh Xuan Thanh taken to temporary detention facility

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC – Investigators at the Ministry of Public Security said on Monday they had taken Trinh Xuan Thanh, former chairman of PetroVietnam Construction Corporation (PVC), to a temporary detention facility, according to local media reports.

The temporary detention warrant for Thanh facilitates a probe into Thanh who is facing charges of deliberately violating State regulations on economic management causing serious consequences and corruption.

According to the police, Thanh had fled Vietnam after he was accused of violating State regulations on business administration resulting in losses of nearly VND3.3 trillion (US$144.61 million) for PVC and its subsidiaries in 2011-2013. He also faced corruption charges in connection with the Thanh Ha - Cienco 5 Land Project.

Thanh turned himself in to police at the Ministry of Public Security on July 31 after a year of evading an international arrest warrant issued by the ministry.

On September 16 last year, the police filed charges against Thanh.
