HCMC – The police have pressed charges against the director of Phuc Tho Petroleum Transport Trade Company Limited in HCMC, Nguyen The Hung, and his two subordinates for stealing 80 tons of diesel oil.
A further investigation has been carried out to clarify signs of fuel theft and smuggling and determine whether anyone else was involved in the crime.
Previously, Hung directed his subordinates to take a barge to Nha Be Petroleum Warehouse, receiving 110 tons of diesel oil on February 22.
Before delivery to Petrolimex Ba Ria Vung Tau Company, Hung asked his subordinates to open the seals and pump 80 tons of diesel oil into two other barges.
Several days later, this volume of oil was transferred to another delivery vehicle and detected by the local officials.
According to the police, the 80 tons of diesel oil that Hung and his men stole is worth VND1.5 billion.
