On December 23, 2022, the People’s Police newspaper published an article with the content “Who helped the leaders of Dong Nai province get capital from the central government?” The article said that when the project was short of capital, Tran Dinh Thanh, then Secretary of the Dong Nai Provincial Party Committee, called to Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan to “apply for capital from the Central Government” and she accepted. In response to that “gratitude,” Mr. Thanh asked his subordinates to create conditions for AIC Company to win the bid, because this is a capable and reputable enterprise having many relationships with the Central Government and merit in applying for capital for the Dongnai province.
In the case of Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan’s AIC Company winning the contract with Dong Nai General Hospital, after Ms. Nhan accepted to help the province, Mr. Tran Dinh Thanh had a meeting with the Ministry of Planning and Investment and the province was fiven additionan VND754 billion ($31 million) for its projects. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan’s AIC company was given the opportunity to win the contract because the company’s leaders had merit. The project was approved in 2006, the total investment is VND889 billion, excluding specialized medical equipment. In July 2010, the project was changed and supplemented with medical equipment of VND754 billion, bringing the total investment to VND1.9 trillion. After adjustments, the project has 16 specialized medical equipment packages, worth VND654 billion and AIC group won all 16 packages, with prices much higher than reality.
According to the information we received, Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan is a super broker, an intermediary between the province and the Central Government, and she is also an intermediary between the intelligence agency of the Ministry of Defense and the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan’s path to becoming a super broker was trained before 2010. To become a super broker, Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan must have known the central level from a very early age, which was given to her as an international and domestic broker.
Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan’s AIC-related case is a huge case from the time when Mr. Pham Minh Chinh was Secretary of the Quang Ninh Provincial Party Committee. Among the officials who asked Mrs. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan to act as a broker with the Central Committee, were provincial officials who did not have great acquaintances outside the Central Government. Meanwhile, Mr. Pham Minh Chinh was the Secretary of Quang Ninh province when Mr. Chinh was acquainted with his big bosses at the Ministry of Public Security.
In 1995, Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung held the position of Deputy Minister of the Interior, ie the Ministry of Public Security today. At that time, Mr. Pham Minh Chinh returned to the country, after completing his spying mission at the Vietnamese Diplomatic Service, in Romania. At that time, Mr. Pham Minh Chinh was a soldier of Nguyen Tan Dung at the Ministry of Interior.
Later, Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung advanced and always cared about Mr. Chinh. In 2002, Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung was Permanent Deputy Prime Minister, while Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung was quite close to Mr. Le Hong Anh as Minister of Public Security. Sent by Nguyen Tan Dung, Mr. Le Hong Anh promoted Pham Minh Chinh. By the time Mr. Dung became Prime Minister in 2006, Pham Minh Chinh also advanced in the Ministry of Public Security and rose to the position of Deputy Minister of Public Security in 2010.
At the Ministry of Public Security, Pham Minh Chinh has a history of promoting to general ranks such as Major General and Lieutenant General, both in the same period as To Lam. And on August 12, 2012, Mr. Pham Minh Chinh was appointed as Deputy Minister of Public Security like Mr. To Lam. Pham Minh Chinh and To Lam are always fighting each other and really don’t like each other.
In 2011, when Mr. Le Hong Anh was no longer Minister of Public Security, Mr. Pham Minh Chinh was campaigned by Nguyen Tan Dung and Le Hong Anh to move to Quang Ninh. Then Mr. Pham Minh Chinh turned to another direction, protected by two Politburo members, Le Hong Anh and Nguyen Tan Dung.
That is Pham Minh Chinh’s familiarity with the southern political fraction. Pham Minh Chinh has many other acquaintances, but these are two acquaintances that help Pham Minh Chinh take a detour but reach the destination before To Lam. When Pham Minh Chinh reached the Prime Minister position, To Lam was still the Minister.
With such a connection, in 2012, Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan knew officials more power than Pham Minh Chinh in the Central Committee. Therefore, the combination of Pham Minh Chinh and Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan in Quang Ninh cannot be doubted. Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan is a super broker, extremely familiar. However, whether To Lam will pull it out or not, wait and see.
