Police Department Police a few days ago arrested Mr. Tang Hung Cuong, leader of an oil company in Nghe An due "related to the line to send Trinh Xuan Thanh to escape overseas," reported November 27 on the website Sputnik Vietnam and Msn News.
Msn takes the news of Tuoi Tre, while Spiegel does not show the source of the news from any source in Vietnam, although the content is not different from the news of Tuoi Tre.
A source from the Nghe An Police Department told Tuoi Tre that the 41-year-old Duong Cuong's arrest took place on 21 November. At the time of his arrest, he was chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Nghe An Petroleum Investment – Trading Company.
According to the report, the Ministry's Criminal Police Department also coordinated the Criminal Police Department of Nghe An province to inspect Cuong's home in Vinh city.
The news of the arrest was posted on the Tuoi Tre newspaper's website at 4 pm on November 27, but about six hours the same day it no longer exists.
The VOA attempted to contact the Criminal Police Department to confirm this, but they did not respond. Meanwhile, a media source in Vietnam reported on the case with VOA that the arrest was "definitely happening," and said that Tuoi Tre may have to withdraw information because "the line refers to Trinh Xuan Thanh how big it is. "
Trinh Xuan Thanh, 51, a former president of PVC, a company of the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, fled to Germany when he was indicted on corruption charges.
In July 1974, Thanh was returned to Vietnam after an action the German government accused of "hijacking Vietnamese agents" Mr. Thanh when he was applying for asylum. In contrast, Hanoi denied the allegations and showed evidence that Thanh had "confessed."
Earlier this year, Thanh was sentenced by a Vietnamese court to life in prison.
