‘Nhue’ street claimed to be known for ‘eating money on corpses’


peacefulNguyen Xuan Duong (Duong “Nhue”) said five times that he was “reputed for being a vulture that eats corpses”, asking the court to reject the prosecution’s charge of appropriating property of cremation service establishments.

On the afternoon of November 17 at the People’s Court of Thai Binh province, Duong (Duong “Nhue”), 40 years old, was isolated during questioning in the case of the robbery of nearly 2.5 billion dong for cremation.

8 lawyers returned after simultaneously leaving in the morning because they thought that the court violated proceedings during the summoning process. One lawyer explained that because “we could not agree on how to oppose the trial panel, we had to continue to participate in the trial”.

At the interrogation, the group of Tang’s juniors said that in 2017, under the direction of Duong, “invited” the owners of cremation service businesses in Thai Binh to meet twice to establish the Thai Binh Funeral Association. Duong’s group agreed to divide the area of ​​operation, collect 500,000 VND/cremation from establishments

Asked about this agreement, Nguyen Manh Tien (Tien “White”), 26 years old, briefly presented: “The defendant is silent, only asking for 20 years in prison”. Tien would like to give up the information that the adopted son Duong “Nhue” is recorded in the indictment because now “the meaning is over, the green is always ripe”.

After Tien, Duong declared the indictment with many incorrect points. Firstly, the information about the defendant Pham Van Uy, 32 years old (the secretary of Duong’s wife) counting the cremation money for him from May to December 2019 is wrong, because “At that time Uy was in prison.” .

Second, the indictment from the third page writes that To Van Son, 47, helped him threaten the representative of Nam Dinh incarnation in Thai Binh. However, at the end, the indictment states that Son only appeared once at the meeting at the cafe and “did not say or do anything” so he was not handled.

Duong said that with the two “wrongs” above, the indictment “how can it be convicted?”. The 40-year-old defendant therefore hopes that the fair chairman will reject all charges so as not to be “wrongly thought by the whole country as a vulture that eats corpses”. Those identified as victims are actually “business partners”, Duong said.

The Chairman then reminded defendant Duong that this is an interrogation session, the views will be presented in the debate.

Duong’s wife, defendant Nguyen Thi Duong, 41 years old, admitted to signing a number of principle contracts between Duong Duong Company and funeral service establishments in Thai Binh to collect 500,000 VND / cremation shift. In addition to signing the contract, Duong is accused of receiving money for “protection” of cremation twice, totaling nearly 100 million VND.

Duong declares that he only deals in real estate, not knowing that her husband “does more cremation services”. Because he believed and wanted Duong to do business, he signed a contract with funeral facilities even though he “didn’t read it, didn’t know the contents”.

Duong therefore believes that only violating “enterprise law, not rape”. “Without the defendant, the Thai Binh Funeral Association is still operating like today without a lawyer, the court will still hear it.”

The female defendant affirmed that “always put her mind above her work, so she will never lose her honor just for tens of millions of dong”.

The indictment determined that Duong and his accomplices forced funeral service establishments in Thai Binh to pay him 500,000 VND/cremation. Those who oppose will be threatened, blocked, or beaten. From 2017 to 2020, this group collected nearly 2.5 billion VND for cremation protection from 25 service establishments.

Duong was arrested in April 2020 and sentenced to 7 years in prison in 3 cases that have just been tried. In the opening court session today, husband and wife Duong and Tien “White” and Ninh Duc Loi, 47 years old; Pham Van Uy, 32 years old; Nguyen Khac Nin, 42 years old; Quach Viet Cuong, 47 years old; being tried for a crime Property expropriation, under Article 170 of the Penal Code.

Tomorrow, the trial continues.
