Police in Ho Chi Minh City have asked prosecutors to press charges against executives from state-owned lender Agribank for allowing VND20 billion (US$949,000) to be stolen from its ATMs.

Investigators said that Nguyen Thanh Nhan, former deputy head of the marketing desk at the bank’s branch in Binh Thanh District, stole the money from late 2011 until he was discovered in October 2012. He spent all the money gambling in Cambodia.

Nhan was left to refill ATM saves without being supervised by the branch’s cashiers and accountant as regulated.

The police thus also asked for charges against Do Huu Khuong, 46-year-old former deputy head of the Accountant and Cashier Department of the branch, Dinh Thi Thu Ngan, 38-year-old former cashier, for their culpability in the matter, as well as the former branch director Lu Sy Hanh, and two former deputy directors Bui Thi Som and Pham Thi Thanh Huong.

Nhan only had to report verbally to Huong and Khuong when he needed money for the ATMs, and he carried the money away all by himself.
