Impersonating an “officer at the Ministry of Public Security” appropriated more than 40 billion dong
On May 16, the People’s Court of Ho Chi Minh City announced the postponement of the first-instance trial of defendant Nguyen Ngoc Thien (SN 1981) for the crime of “fraudulent appropriation of property”. The trial panel will notify the trial date as soon as possible.
