The suspects are Truong Thi Binh, 38 years old, vice director of Duc Anh Medical Services and Trade Ltd Company based in Hanoi’s Dong Da District, La Van Thi, 38, sale manager of the company, Nguyen Duc Viet Anh, 33 years old, sale employee of the company and Hoang Van Toi, 31 years old, worker at a hospital in Hanoi.
According to the authorities, Hanoi police and the city’s Market Watch Department on April 8 found Duc Anh Company’s employees had packed protective suits and labelled them as products of two other companies – Phuc Ha Medical Equipment and Pharmacy JSC in Bac Tu Liem District and Quang Trung Trade, Services and Printing Ltd Company in Hoang Mai District.
From January to April 8 this year, Binh and other suspects are alleged to have bought separate protective suits and then, made fake labels, sold the suits to earn profits.
