In Vietnam, there is no rich man who is not close to political power. It is easy to say that if you want to do big business, you need to have the political power to support you. Tan Hiep Phat Enterprise of giant magnate Tran Quy Thanh (also known as Dr. Thanh) is seen as a force close to the person holding the biggest power today, General Secretary of the ruling Communist Party of Vietnam cum State President Nguyen Phu Trong.
Currently, Mr. Trong is in weak health and he is also about to end his term in less than 6 months. The high-ranking power structure is now considered fine. Those who have settled in are not afraid of losing their seats, but they worry about manipulating the giants that are familiar with the old forces. With such power, but suddenly the press reports that the Ministry of Public Security is targeting Mr. Tran Quy Thanh’s family, causing people to ask a big question: Is this a manipulation of the new forces to entice the Richman having a lot of money on their side or not? Previously, it can be said that based on Mr. Trong’s power, almost no force could touch Tran Quy Thanh’s Tan Hiep Phat. From a business in the south, but the relationship spread to the central and to the most powerful person in the Communist Party, disturbing the forces.
Recently on CafeF and many other newspapers simultaneously reported “The Ministry of Public Security asked Ho Chi Minh City to provide legal documents to investigate Dr. Thanh’s daughter” which surprised many people. Is the stronghold that gave back to Tan Hiep Phat nowadays? An almost inviolable force that is now being touched by the back of the neck makes people question big questions.
When was Tan Hiep Phat backed by Mr. Trong?
Since 2014, Tan Hiep Phat has just inaugurated Factory Number One in Ha Nam, Nguyen Phu Trong personally visited the factory with a large entourage. At Tan Hiep Phat Ha Nam, Mr. Trong was arranged to speak to the staff of Factory No. 1 Ha Nam, Mr. Trong praised the Tan Hiep Phat Group in which the main character was Mr. Tran Quy Thanh. Mr. Trong said that “With our experience, Tan Hiep Phat Group needs to try harder to develop a large-scale enterprise, especially to create jobs for local workers well.”
Yes! Mr. Trong comes to a business to meet with workers and speak to workers is an unprecedented job. It is unclear how close Mr. Tran Quy Thanh and Mr. Trong were but invited Mr. Trong to such strong stilts. Mr. Trong also forgot the principle of ensuring security and had close contact with workers.
During that visit, Mr. Trong was invited to visit the factory area and press the button to start the herbal tea production line Dr. Thanh – the first product at the Number 1 beverage factory in Ha Nam. With this image, it is a testament to Tran Quy Thanh’s influence on Ha Nam land. No provincial official would dare make it difficult for him to do business.
Tan Hiep Phat, an inviolable force
It is known that from 2009 until now, the brand Dr. Tan Hiep Phat’s bar has been involved in 6 branded beverage scandals. Stick with flies. The cases can be named as follows:
In the first case, in March 2009, at the restaurant of Mrs. Thu Ha (Thac Vang restaurant, Bien Hoa), a visitor noticed that the Number One energy drink bottle still had a lid containing a straw inside. Her staff informed the Tan Hiep Phat company, but no one came to deal with it.
In the second case, in 2010, Mr. Truong Ngoc Tuan (40 years old, residing in Hoc Mon district, HCMC) bought 2 boxes of Number 1 Soya soymilk for sale and use. When using Mr. Tuan, he discovered that 6 bottles were rippled with white precipitate. Dr. The bar does not settle.
In the third case, in 2011, Mr. Pham Van Truc (45 years old, the owner of Thien Thai coffee shop at 9/134, DT 743 street, Binh Duc street, Binh Hoa ward, Thuan An town, Binh Duong) reflected on Petrotimes about the discovery of some more damaged beverage products of Tan Hiep Phat that his shop accidentally received. The case is the same as the previous cases.
In the fourth case, 2012, Ms. Tat To Mai – owner of the Maritime Coffee Shop (No. 70 Ha Long Street, Vung Tau City, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province) reflected: The herbal tea bottles of Dr.Thanh were still intact open and expire to May 6/2013. However, drinking water in the bottle has a state of pig slurry that is floating above the bottle neck.
The fifth case, Nguyen Dinh Hiep, resides on Nguyen Viet Xuan street, city. Vinh reflected Dan Viet newspaper’s reporters, on August 8, he bought 2 batches of 0-degree green tea at Ms. Van’s grocery store on Nguyen Viet Xuan street. After taking the last bottle of the first batch to drink, Hiep discovered a yellow “strange object” stuck to his mouth.
In the sixth case, the owner of the rice shop Vo Van Minh (35 years old, living in An Cu commune, Cai Be district, Tien Giang) discovered that there were flies in the Number One water bottle that had not been opened in the Tan Hiep Phat Company. Minh kept the water bottle and then called the business to send a representative to meet Minh to negotiate. During the first meeting, Minh asked the company to give Minh VND1 billion ($44,000) or else he would spread the news out. After three minutes of negotiation with a record, the two sides agreed to a price of VND500 million. On January 27, 2015, Minh made an appointment to meet with representatives of Tan Hiep Phat Company at a coffee shop in Cai Be district, Tien Giang province, while Minh received the money, he was scouted by the Provincial Criminal Police Department. Tien Giang caught in the act. As a result, Mr. Vo Van Minh was rejected and the mistakes of Tan Hiep Phat did not dare to touch by any agency.
His daughter Tran Quy Thanh was touched by the back of the neck
Currently, the Ministry of Public Security has asked the chairman of the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City to stop the fluctuations and provide all legal documents for 33 land plots in the name of Tran Uyen Phuong for investigation and verification.
The Investigation Police Agency, the Ministry of Public Security issued a document 4631 on November 25 to the chairman of the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City on the proposal to suspend the fluctuation and provide documents for investigation and verification.
Accordingly, the Investigation Agency, the Ministry of Public Security asked the Chairman of the City People’s Committee to direct departments, branches and the People’s Committee of Thu Duc district, Binh Tan district to maintain the status quo, legal procedures, to halt all changes (transactions transfer, trade, donate, pledge, mortgage …) and provide all legal documents and documents for 33 land plots in the name of Tran Uyen Phuong (born in 1981, resident 169 No Trang Long, District Binh Thanh ).
Previously, the Investigation Agency, the Ministry of Public Security also sent document 4335 dated 9/11 to the People’s Committee of Dong Nai province on proposing to suspend changes for investigation and verification.
To serve the investigation request, the Investigation Agency, the Ministry of Public Security requested the People’s Committee of Dong Nai province to direct departments (Department of Planning and Investment, Department of Natural Resources and Environment, Department of Finance, Department of Justice, and Department of Justice. tax …) and the People’s Committee of Long Thanh district maintain the status quo, legal procedures and suspend all changes (transactions of transferring, buying, selling, donating, pledging, mortgage shares, land use rights …) until comments from the Investigation Agency, the Ministry of Public Security on Minh Thanh Dong Nai Real Estate and the planned Residential Service Area project in An Phuoc commune, Long Thanh district.
This hit shows unlike the previous times. All newspapers simultaneously reported as if directed at the Central agencies. In previous times, Mr. Tran Quy Thanh used the power of relations to crush the media and put the denouncers in prison, whether this time he could manage it is a question that many people want to know.
Being accused of land fraud, will Mr. Tran Quy Thanh act like a VND500 million fly case?
Currently, the Police Investigation Agency of the Ministry of Public Security is investigating the petition of an individual denouncing Ms. Tran Uyen Phuong and Mr. Nguyen Phi Long with signs of fraudulent appropriation of the land on Ho Hoc Lam Street, Binh Tan District.
Regarding the incident, at the end of March 2019 until now, the People’s Court of Binh Tan District has issued a decision to block 29 land plots under the name of Mrs. Phuong. The Ministry of Public Security also investigated the content of denunciations of fraudulent large value land related to Tran Uyen Phuong. Thinking that he was blatantly deceived, Mr. Chung denounced Ms. Phuong and Mr. Long to the Ministry of Public Security and the agency accepted and investigated.
This is the fourth case case after the case Vo Van Minh denounced the fly in the bottle Dr. Thanh. At that time, Mr. Tran Quy Thanh brought Vo Van Minh into a trap and used money and relations to force Vo Van Minh into prison and escaped the crime. To fight Dr. Thanh is not simple. This time Mr. Nguyen Phi Long needs to learn a lesson from the Vo Van Minh case to avoid going into the tracks of his car.
Tan Hiep Phat, an inviolable force now, doesn’t seem as solid as it used to be. Nguyen Phu Trong is about to end his time, Mr. Tran Quy Thanh must find a suitable new force to sponsor his business. Tran Quy Thanh is very rich, his business is a lot of prey to more people, the denunciation has just begun to say anything. Wait and see what happens next. Tran Quy Thanh’s force was very strong. It is unclear if this time the Ministry of Public Security will deal with him or not, time will tell.
