The Hanoi People’s Court has handed out sentences to 14 people who participated in the MobiFone corruption scandal, notes a Jurist report. This sentencing concluded Vietnam’s largest corruption investigation since the government began its anti-graft campaign. The case stemmed from a deal in which state telecommunications firm MobiFone overpaid for a 95% stake in the television provider Audio Visual Global JSC, paying about $380m. The scheme involved a number of government officials.
