Cop arrested for aiding fugitive
HAI PHONG (VNS)— Nguyen Trong Anh, 28, a policeman of northern Hai Phong City's Police Department, was remanded in custody on Tuesday by the Ministry of Public Security.
He was arrested for allegedly helping Duong Chi Dung – the former boss of Viet Nam National Shipping Lines - to escape abroad.
A week ago, another police officer from the department was also arrested on the same charge.
Dung, 56, was arrested last September after being charged with "intentionally violating State regulations on economic management, causing serious consequences" during his time at the loss-making company, in accordance with Article 165 of the Penal Code. — VNS
