Ex-oil exec surrenders to corruption probe after year on run

HANOI, Vietnam — A former Vietnamese oil executive has surrendered to police after a year on the run amid a crackdown on corruption by the country’s communist authorities.

Trinh Xuan Thanh, 51, disappeared in July last year after he was accused of mismanagement at a subsidiary of national oil and gas giant, PetroVietnam, resulting in losses of some $150 million.

Police issued an arrest warrant against Thanh in September. Officials have said he fled to Europe.
