HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Public Security on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant against Trần Khắc Hùng, 47, chairman of the Board of Directors and head of the Training Institute at Đông Đô University on charges of forgery.
Hùng resided in Cầu Giấy District, Hà Nội.
The ministry said everyone would have the right to arrest Hùng and take him to the nearest police station, People’s Procuracy or People’s Committee.
After taking Hùng into custody, people are required to immediately inform the ministry, located at No 3, Nguyễn Gia Thiều, Trần Hưng Đạo Ward, Hoàn Kiếm District or contact 0692342431 or 0692342143.
The ministry also called upon Hùng to turn himself in to the police so that he would receive the leniency of the law.
Previously, the police took legal action against Dương Văn Hòa, principal of the university and Trần Ngọc Quang, deputy head of Training and Student Management Office, Phạm Vân Thùy and Lê Thị Lương – staff of the university, for the same offence on July 30.
Initial investigation showed that the suspects were allegedly in cahoots with about 200 short-term training centres to issue certificates of English language proficiency for thousands of people without the need to take classes or sit for exams since 2016.
The certificates’ owners were allegedly using them to perfect their CVs with the purpose of getting raises or promotions at work or recruitment.
Đông Đô University, established in 1994, is one of the earliest private university in Việt Nam. Based in Hà Nội, the university is currently providing undergraduate courses in 23 majors. — VNS
