Kiet and 43-year-old Do Hoang Minh have been charged for “being irresponsible and causing serious consequences”, said the Supreme People’s Procuracy.
According to investigators, Kiet and Minh committed serious wrongdoings when they enforced a civil verdict issued by the city People’s Court in 2010.
Under the verdict, Nguyen Minh Chanh, a local man, had to pay VND4.7 billion ($225,000) to Ho Thi Thai Hoa, also in Can Tho. The two former officials then used two houses valued at the same amount and owned by Pham Hung Dinh and Ngo Than Thien, who were Chanh’s debtors, as a payment to Hoa.
Such a payment caused a damage of VND2.6 billion ($124,000) to Dinh and Thien, since they actually owed Chanh only VND2.1 billion.
Moreover, Kiet and Minh handed the houses over to Hoa without the presence of the houses’ owners and representatives of local authorities.
Kiet later asked the district People’s Committee to grant Hoa two certificates of house ownership and land use rights for the two houses.
After getting the certificates, Hoa sold the houses, making the case more complicated.
