Police in Ho Chi Minh City said on Friday that they have started legal proceedings against a former ward-level police leader in District 6, together with 11 other people, for gambling and organizing gambling.

Based on reports of local residents, police officers caught the 12 people red-handed gambling at 30/2 Trinh Dinh Thao Street in Hoa Thanh Ward, Tan Phu District, on May 5.

The gambling was organized by Ngo Nhut Thanh, also known as 'Thanh muoi ngan' (Thanh ten thousand), and his accomplices.

Thanh and the accessories also played in the illegal betting games.

Doan Hong Phuc, an ex-deputy head in Ward 6’s police bureau in District 6, was also among the gamblers, police said.

The Ho Chi Minh City police arrested and launched legal proceedings against all 12 people, including Phuc, on May 14 for “gambling” and “organizing gambling.”

The arrest warrant and indictment decision were approved by the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Procuracy and implemented by the municipal police in accordance with the law, police stated.

An investigation is underway to clarify the case.
