HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Public Security announced on Thursday the arrest of Phan Văn Anh Vũ, a businessman hailing from the central city of Đà Nẵng.
In December, the ministry launched a criminal probe into Vũ, a 43-year-old real estate developer, accusing him of “deliberately revealing State secrets”, which is punishable by up to 15 years in jail in Việt Nam.
The Police Investigation Agency under the Ministry of Public Security issued an arrest warrant for him on December 21, as he had earlier left his home.
According to the ministry’s announcement, the accused was deported from Singapore on Thursday for breaking its immigration laws and arrived at Nội Bài airport in the afternoon.
The ministry said it had received Vũ and would continue the investigation according to Vietnamese law. — VNS
