PetroVietnam Execs Targeted in Vietnam Government Anti-Corruption Campaign

by admin on January 12, 2018







The anti-corruption scheme is suspected to be politically driven and targeted towards those who are close to former PM Nguyen Tan Dung. The high profile case taking place in Hanoi courts are the losses of about $150 million at a subsidiary of PetroVietnam.

Among the 22 executives accused, is a Politburo member, who Germany claims was kidnapped from a park in Berlin, forced to face the charges back home. However, when the Politburo member appeared in court he stated that he had returned home on his own will. The other executives accused are facing charges of “violation of state regulations on economic mismanagement”.

Thailand family courts have special procedures for Thailand child custody cases such as special court counseling section referral to the office of obscuration and protection center. 

The anti-corruption campaign aims to clean up the banking and energy sectors of fraud and misconduct. The PetroVietnam executives on charge may face up to 20 years in jail or even the death penalty.
