Dam said that the inspection, investigation, prosecution and the application of preventive measures for Duong Chi Dung have been conducted in accordance with the provisions of the law.
The Prime Minister has monitored very closely for the arrest of Dung from the beginning, he added.

Duong Chi Dung fled away one day before the official issue of an indictment and arrest warrant issued for him in early May. Dung has been wanted internationally since May 19 following his alleged economic offenses when he was board chairman of the Vietnam Shipping Lines Corporation or Vinalines.

According to Dam, after Dung ran away, the PM, who is also the head of the Central steering board for anti-corruption, asked the Ministry of Public Security to try its best to arrest Dung.

The PM also asked relevant agencies to clarify the responsibility of the people who covered up for Dung. Anyone who has shielded or lent a hand to Dung should give up themselves to enjoy clemency, Dam said.

There is no forbidden zone and any individual who involves in the case will be strictly punished, Dam said.
