Hanoi police proposed two officials of the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV) be charged with soliciting bribery on Wednesday.

 

Police said Doan Tien Dung, deputy general director of BIDV, had received over VND6 billion (US$316,372) from Hoang Van Khanh, director general of the Hai Phong Weaving and Sewing Company, in exchange for approving the latter's request for a cash withdrawal after money had been transfered to his account by another company.

 

Khanh had transferred the money to Dung three times, but later reported the act to police who caught Dung red-handed taking VND1 billion from Khanh at a pho restaurant on February 2.

 

Tran Thi Thanh Binh, vice director of the BIDV branch in the northern province of Hai Phong, acted as Dung's accomplice, according to police.
