Accordingly, Dinh La Thang, born in 1960, is investigated for the charge of “violating regulations on investment in construction structures, causing serious consequences” under Article 224 of the Penal Code.
This is the latest investigation by police at the Phu Tho ethanol factory of Petrochemical and Bio-Fuel JSC - a subsidiary of PetroVietnam.
The Ministry of Public Security also launched criminal proceedings against Tran Thi Binh, born in 1958, former deputy director general of PetroVietnam, for the same charge.
The case is still under investigation in accordance with the law.
Thang has already been sentenced to 30 year imprisonment for being guilty in two economic mismanagement cases at PetroVietnam.
