HCMC – Do Huu Ca, former director of the Haiphong City Police Department, has been charged with asset misappropriation fraud.
The 65-year-old was detained on February 18 for his alleged involvement in tax evasion and illegal trading of invoices that happened in Haiphong City and neighboring Quang Ninh Province.
The police of the northern province of Quang Ninh were quoted by the local media as saying today, February 22, that they are investigating a criminal case involving tax evasion, and illegal trading of invoices.
The probe found a group of people had set up front companies that were illegally trading in invoices and evading taxes.
Therefore, investigators of Quang Ninh Province have pressed charges against and detained three Haiphong City residents – Truong Xuan Duoc, , Duoc’s wife Nguyen Thi Ngoc Anh and Truong Van Nam for illegally dealing in invoices and tax documents.
A Lao Dong newspaper report said Truong Xuan Duoc had 18 front companies illegally trading invoices. This illegal practice was discovered in 2021 while the Quang Ninh police were probing allegations of irregularities in material and equipment procurement tenders at the Dong Trieu thermos-power plant project.
On April 28 last year, the police filed charges against a case involving abuse of powers while on duty and violations of bidding rules causing serious consequences.
