This Woman Just Got Sentenced to Death for Rs. 1 Lakh Crore Fraud! Full Story Inside



Hanoi: A Vietnamese court has sentenced real estate mogul Truong My Lan to death, marking the culmination of the country’s largest-ever financial fraud trial. Lan, head of Van Thinh Phat Holdings Group, faced charges over a massive 304 trillion dong (Over Rs. 1 Lakh crore) scheme linked to the Saigon Joint Stock Commercial Bank (SCB). Authorities claimed Lan manipulated the bank’s operations, using numerous intermediaries to illicitly funnel funds.

The trial, part of Vietnam’s intensified “Blazing Furnace” anti-corruption initiative, concluded swiftly, underscoring the government’s resolve to combat graft. Lan and her co-defendants, totaling 84, faced various penalties, with sentences ranging from three years of probation to life in prison. The case not only highlights the rigorous enforcement actions but also underscores the broader economic implications, including past instances where similar crackdowns led to significant market downturns.

In response to the allegations, Lan’s legal representation was not immediately reachable for comment, local media reported. Meanwhile, a family member signaled the possibility of an appeal, reflecting the ongoing legal battle.
