On April 27, the People’s Court of Ho Chi Minh City at the first instance trial sentenced defendant Trinh Huu Tu Tran (residing in Hoc Mon district, Ho Chi Minh City) to 20 years in prison for the crime of “embezzlement of property”.
At the court, the female defendant repeatedly asked the jury to pronounce the death sentence and expressed her wish to have the death sentence executed immediately.
The female defendant asked the court to sentence him to death
According to the indictment, since 2009, Tu Tran worked as an office worker of Anh Thai Duong Co., Ltd. In 2017, Tran moved to be the company’s treasurer with the task of collecting cash and managing the safe. The company’s leaders also assigned the female cashier to monitor customer debts, collect and pay cash through the company’s bank account.
In addition, Tran holds cash funds of 6 other companies, which are regular partners in coordination with Anh Thai Duong Co., Ltd. to train labor skills and supply them to Japan.
At that time, Tran had a love relationship with Mr. Nguyen Thanh Tung (American nationality). By 2020, Mr. Tung will return to Vietnam to live with Tran.
Because he gambled and was in debt, Tran often took money from Anh Thai Duong Co., Ltd. and gave it to Mr. Tung to pay the debt. Each time, Tran brought in from a few tens of millions to about 100 million dong.
Tran knows that the company does not check the monthly cash fund, so it should fully report the amount of revenue and expenditure, the balance of funds in accordance with the books and documents. Thanks to that, Tran has advantages over management.
The female cashier surreptitiously withdrew money from the company’s account, safe as well as the partner’s cash fund. In total, Tran appropriated more than 3 billion VND and 34 million Japanese Yen.
Having money, Tran gave it to Tung to pay his debts and spend it personally.
By the end of 2020, Tran did not come to work, so the leader of Anh Thai Duong Co., Ltd. checked the company’s bank account and safe. As a result, the enterprise discovered that a large amount of money (more than 3 billion VND and 34 million Japanese yen) was “flying without wings”.
Confronted, Mr. Tung asserted that he did not know what was illegal, nor did he use the money Tran appropriated from the company.
