South Korean detained for gambling away company money

Yang Young Jin, 46, is being investigated by Bac Ninh police for "abuse of trust to appropriate property."

Yang said he has lived in Vietnam since 2001 and has a family here. He works for a South Korean firm based in Bac Ninh and was entrusted with $55,000 for management by the company director, also a South Korean.

From July 25 to 28, Yang spent all the money gambling at a casino. When the money ran out, he hid in a relative’s home in Ho Chi Minh City’s Phu Nhuan District.

Police found Yang on Nov. 9. Authorities said he admitted to his crime and requested police to buy him a plane ticket to Hanoi.
