-- The transport department of Ho Chi Minh City has ordered that all street works in the city be temporarily halted between January 17 and February 2 as the country celebrates Tet, or Lunar New Year, which will fall on January 25 with preparation and celebration taking place a week before and after the date.

-- Police officers in the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long on Sunday captured four people suspected of making an unlawful arrest of a debtor while they were taking the captive from Vinh Long to Ho Chi Minh City in a car.

Business

Vu ‘nhom,’ and two former chairmen of the central city, Tran Van Minh and Van Huu Chien, have denied causing losses of VND22 trillion (US$952.6 million) to the state budget through their transactions of 22 public properties and seven real estate projects at a court on Sunday.
