Trịnh Xuân Thanh
HÀ NỘI – The Ministry of Public Security yesterday issued an arrest warrant domestically and internationally for Trịnh Xuân Thanh, 50, former Chairman of PetroVietnam Construction Corporation (PVC).
The ministry decided to prosecute Thanh, a former member of southern Hậu Giang Province’s Party Committee, for alleged violations of State regulations on economic management resulting in massive losses for the PVC during his leadership.
The ministry ordered his detention and a search on his house.
The ministry’s investigation police on Thursday announced a decision to start criminal prosecutions for violations of economic rules at PVC.
Earlier this month, members of the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee agreed to expel Thanh from the Party with the motion winning 100 per cent of votes. — VNS
