HÀ NỘI — A Vietnamese fugitive has been extradited from Cuba by officials from the Ministry of Defence and Interpol.
Lê Quang Hiếu Hùng, 45, was arrested on Saturday after months on the run abroad.
Hùng fled to foreign countries after being prosecuted by the defence ministry on forgery charges and producing and trading fake commodities, a criminal offense under Việt Nam’s Penal Code, in October 2018.
It has been claimed he used sophisticated measures to elude detection.
An international arrest warrant was issued by Interpol’s office in Việt Nam following a request made from the ministry.
Hùng used to work as an official under the ministry. — VNS
