According to the prosecution, on April 4, 2015, the People’s Committee of Tan Thoi Hiep Ward, District 12, Ho Chi Minh City issued a decision to bring Tran Vu Nam (from Nam Dinh) who is a drug addict to Nhi Xuan Social Facility for management. treatment, cutting off concentrated detoxification.
On the morning of April 10, 2015, Nam was transferred to Health Recovery Area 1 for monitoring. The officers in charge took Nam and practitioner Pham Van Thao into room 8 of the Health Rehabilitation Zone 1. In this room there were 23 students, divided into 3 trays (the division of the hierarchy in the room).
In which, tray 1 is the objects of authority in the room, including: Thai Ngoc Dung (self-proclaimed head of the department), Le Tan Tai, Ho Hoai My, Nguyen Ngoc Quy, Tran Van Tuan, Le Thanh Truyen; tray 2 is headed by Phan Van Tien.
