HANOI (VNS)– Four engineers have been found guilty of stealing materials from the Nhat Tan Bridge construction project, the Hanoi court announced yesterday.

According to court reports, the four engineers who formerly worked for Sumitomo Mitsu of Japan, colluded to steal 43 steel stakes from the site and sold them for VND320 million ($15,600).

Of the four, Nguyen Huy Binh, 28, was sentenced to three years in prison and Nguyen Huy Dinh, 33, received two and a half years. The other two defendants will be on probation for between 12-15 months.
