Binh’s arrest is linked to the illegal sand mining activities of Trung Hau – Tong 68 Investment Joint Stock Company at the sand mines in My Hiep and Binh Phuoc Xuan communes, Cho Moi District, An Giang. This is regarded as the largest illegal sand mining ring in the province to date. The company operated in the sand mines in My Hiep and Binh Phuoc Xuan communes. Also involved in this case are Tran Anh Thu, vice chairman of An Giang Province, who was accused by C03 on August 25 and detained on allegations of bribery, and Nguyen Viet Tri, director of the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of An Giang Province, who was similarly accused. Thu also instructed his subordinates to overlook violations during the exploitation process at the sand mines in My Hiep and Binh Phuoc Xuan operated by the company.
