The police also issued a house searching order and prohibited Toan from leaving his residence.

Toan was president of a council in charge of resettlement compensation and assistance for Hoang Long urban area project in Phuoc Long Commune which is invested by Construction and Geology Investment UPGC One Member Joint Stock Company.

Khanh Hoa Province police are expanding investigation into the project’s violations.

Police also commenced criminal proceedings against two other officials – Luong Nhu Giap, official of Nha Trang City’s Finance and Planning Division and Vo My, official of the city’s urban management division for similar charges.

Related to the project’s violations, police last month started proceedings against Vu Thi Mai Huong, former chairwoman of Phuoc Long Commune’s People’s Committee and Nguyen Duc Cuong, the commune’s land official.

They are being investigated for violations related to compensation, assistance and resettlement of the project.

In December last year, Do The Vinh and Nguyen Ngoc Khanh - two officers of the Construction and Geology Investment UPGC Company – were arrested for faking documents to receive preferential mechanisms of compensation and resettlement assistance of Hoang Long urban area project.
