A court in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday sentenced three ex-workers of Jetstar Pacific to two years' imprisonment for stealing more than 8,100 liters of jet fuel in 2015.
Four other men were sentenced to suspended sentences of between 18 months and 2 years for trading the stolen fuel, according to the ruling by the People's Court of Ho Chi Minh City.
Nguy Nhu Thanh, Do Van Hung and Le Van Hung were in charge carrying maintenance engineers to Jetstar aircraft at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City, and fuel taken from the aircraft to a storage for regular tests.
They stole the fuel, worth nearly VND120 million, during the delivery between December 2014 and January 2015.
They sold it to Vu The Hung and Vu Van Dung who then hired Huynh Duc Dung to resell it to Tran Van Suu.
At the trial, a representative of Jetstar Pacific said the carrier wouldn't demand a compensation since the police had helped it recover most of the stolen fuel.
