Vietnamese police have proposed the country's highest justice office, the People's Supreme Procuracy, press charges against a former Vietnam Airlines employee for making flight bomb threats last year.
According to investigations' conclusions, Nguyen Bang Viet, 37, a former coordinator of the national carrier's flight attendants, on November 9 texted some VNA agencies, saying that a customer carried a bomb on a flight from Hanoi to Cambodia's Siem Reap.
This prompted VNA to delay the flight for over three hours for investigations, leading to losses of more than VND213 million (US$10,339).
But, no explosive device was found, investigators said.
According to investigators, Viet made the threat due to "personal conflicts."
Viet will face charges of "interfering in air traffic," which can make him get a jail term of up to five years.
