HÀ NỘI — Mai Văn Tinh, former Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Vietnam Steel Corporation (VNSTEEL) and Đậu Văn Hùng, former General Director of VNSTEEL, were detained for investigations into their alleged legal violations in the second phase of the production expansion project of Thái Nguyên Steel and Iron Corporation (Tisco).

Trần Trọng Mừng, former Tisco General Director; Trần Văn Khâm, former Chairman of the Board of Directors and General Director of Tisco; and Ngô Sỹ Hán, former Deputy General Director of Tisco and head of the management board of Tisco’s production expansion project in the second phase were also detained in service of the investigation.

The Investigation Police Department under the Ministry of Public Security said last Saturday that it is working on four cases showing signs of law violations in the second phase of the production expansion project of Tisco. 

Last Thursday, the department issued decisions to start legal proceedings on a criminal case of “offences against regulations of law on investment in construction that lead to serious consequences” and a case of “offences against regulations of law on management and use of State-owned property that lead to losses or wastefulness” which happened during the implementation of the project.

Last Friday, the Supreme People’s Procuracy approved the detainment of the five people.

Accordingly, Tinh and Hùng were charged with “offences against regulations of law on investment in construction that lead to serious consequences” as stated in Article 224 of the 2015 Penal Code.

Meanwhile, Mừng, Khâm and Hán were accused of both “offences against regulations of law on investment in construction that lead to serious consequences” and “offences against regulations of law on management and use of State-owned property that lead to losses or wastefulness” as stated in Article 219 of the 2015 Penal Code.

The cases are under further investigation, according to the department. — VNS
