Members of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), especially among members of the Central Committee, many people call each other “comrade” with their mouths, but there are many deep enmities in their hearts. Sometimes hatred to the point of “nothing in common” with using any opportunity to act mercilessly. Former State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s time is over, now he is like a “losser” and his enemies may attack more to finish him.
His enemies refer to the comrades who had won over Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc. The free media, on the other hand, does not have to join the winners and fight the losers, but the free media is responsible for criticizing the corruption of the regime and the evils of the officials. Whether it is an official with sky high power like Mr. Pham Minh Chinh or retired Nguyen Xuan Phuc. That is the mission of the free media.
To beat Nguyen Xuan Phuc is not easy, you have to go step by step and choose the right time to strike. The extraordinary meeting of the Party Central Committee on January 5 had not been right time. It was not until January 13 that it was possible and Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc was forced to write a resignation letter.
Nguyen Xuan Phuc is from Quang Nam, but he has pushed his hand too deep into Da Nang, especially after the death of Mr. Nguyen Ba Thanh. Many of Mr. Nguyen Ba Thanh’s people were excluded by Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, most specifically Nguyen Xuan Anh – former Party Secretary of Da Nang and Nguyen Ba Canh – son of Nguyen Ba Thanh.
At the Central Government, many people received bitter fruits because of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, including Mr. Nguyen Van Huong – Senior Lieutenant General, former Deputy Minister of Public Security, this person used to be an effective arm of then Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and had great power before retirement.
If Huong is very close to Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung, then Phuc had Lieutenant General Tran Van Ve, former Permanent Deputy Head of the Police Investigation Agency of the Ministry of Public Security and former Chief of the Office of the Investigation Police Agency.
In 2019, Mr. Phuc “gave the green light” for General Tran Van Ve, Standing Deputy Head of the Investigation Police Agency of the Ministry of Public Security, acting Director of the General Department of Police under the Ministry of Public Security, to arrest Colonel Nguyen Duy Linh, Deputy Director General of the General Department of Intelligence and Ho Huu Hoa on charges of “taking bribes” and “bribery broking.”
It is known that Nguyen Duy Linh is the only son of retired general Nguyen Van Huong. Ho Huu Hoa is the grandson of Ho Mau Ngoat, Assistant to Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong. This action of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc is said to touch big forces. At that time, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc was at the peak of his power as the government leader. At that time, Mr. Phuc arrested people and feuded with factions.
After General Tran Van Ve took action against Nguyen Duy Linh and Ho Huu Hoa, not long after that, Tran Van Ve retired and no longer had any power. However, the business relationship between Tran Van Ve’s family and Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s family is still there.
In August 2019, the death of a 6-year-old boy Le Hoang Long, who was studying at Gateway School (Cau Giay, Hanoi) on a shuttle made society stir. The press blamed those at the bottom of the school, and defended those in power. Since then, people have discovered that individuals holding shares in Edufit Group (owner of Gateway international school) are family members of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Mr. Tran Van Ve. As follows:
Tran Thi Hong Van holds 35.7%, Tran Thi Hong Hanh 35.7%, Tran Thi Huyen 14.3% and Nguyen Thi Xuan Trang holds 14.3%.
In which, Nguyen Thi Xuan Trang is the daughter of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Tran Thi Hong Hanh and Tran Thi Huyen are daughters of Mr. Tran Van Dinh, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Dong A Commercial Joint Stock Bank. Mr. Dinh is the brother of Mr. Tran Van Ve. Tran Thi Hong Van is the daughter of Mr. Tran Van Ve.
According to the information we have, this fall of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc is attributed to the contribution of retired general Nguyen Van Huong. Mr. Nguyen Van Huong has a grudge against Tran Van Ve and also Nguyen Xuan Phuc. Now that Phuc’s power has gone, the defenses for his wife and children were breached. Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s daughter and wife are no longer safe. They can be arrested at any time.
