Vietnam Arrests Four More Former Vinashin Officials

Vietnamese police arrested four former officials of Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Group, known as Vinashin, as the government extended its investigation into financial difficulties at the state-owned company.

The people arrested on Sept. 3 include two former board members, Tran Quang Vu and Tran Van Liem, and ex-general directors of two of Vinashin’s subsidiaries, Nguyen Van Tuyen and Nguyen Tuan Duong, according to a statement from the Ministry of Public Security posted on the government’s website on Sept. 3. Pham Thanh Binh, the company’s former chairman and chief executive officer, was arrested a month ago.
