Hanoi police Wednesday proposed prosecutors charge two men with circulating fake US bank notes worth a total of more than US$20,000.
According to the police, their investigations found that Nguyen Dinh Loi, 48, and Nguyen Cong Hanh, 63, provided the counterfeit bills to an as yet unidentified woman who later gave it to Pham Minh Thang, 47, for selling.
On June 27 last year Thang was caught red-handed when he was selling the money to Nguyen Thi Thu Ha at a local air ticket agency.
After the subsequent arrests of Hanh and Loi, police found a large amount of fake foreign bank notes, including two one-million-euro notes, a note worth $100 million, and many $100,000 notes.
The duo reportedly told the police they were keeping the big denomination notes for fun, and did not intend to circulate them.
Further details of the case were not made available. It was also not explained why other people involved in the case were not being prosecuted.
