Former Vietnamese governor suspended over corruption scandal


Prime minister Nguyen Tan Dung has suspended Le Duc Thuy, the former State Bank of Vietnam governor, from his role as head of Vietnam's National Financial Supervisory Council following his implication in a bribery scandal.

The move came after it was revealed in the Australian press that money paid by Securency, a polymer banknote maker, to a Vietnamese businessman implicated in the graft scandal surrounding the company, allegedly benefited the former governor.
