US hands over internationally hunted man to Vietnam

US hands over internationally hunted man to Vietnam

Wednesday, July 17, 2013, 14:28 GMT+7

A 47-year-old Vietnamese man with an international wanted notice was handed over to Vietnamese authorities in Ho Chi Minh City by a US police unit on Wednesday. Police from the Ministry of Public Security, HCMC and the ministry’s Immigration Department received the criminal from US police on the night of July 9 at Tan Son Nhat Airport. The wanted man is Huynh Van Nga, of Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Phu District, who was seized and deported by US police for carrying out a false marriage with an American woman after falsely divorcing his Vietnamese wife in Vietnam. His deceitful acts were aimed at allowing him to be eligible to legally immigrate to the US. Nga began his trick three years ago, when he managed to flee to the US to avoid an arrest warrant in Vietnam for appropriating hundreds of billions of dong (VND1 billion = US$48,000) from many banks. As the director of Thien Son Phu, a company trading in iron and steel, he used the same properties as mortgages at different banks to obtain loans, and then appropriated them. After suspecting that Nga had fled from Vietnam, Vietnamese police issued an international wanted notice against him for “abusing trust to appropriate assets”. Police in HCMC are detaining Nga for investigation into his offense.
