Hung admitted to the police that he took advantage of a social disorder on May 14 to steal the assets from Hung Nghiep Formosa Ha Tinh Co Ltd in the Vung Ang Economic Zone.

Previously, the police found in Hung's house two laptops, a camcorder, a DVD player and mini loudspeakers, as well as two universal serial buses.

Police from the province's Cam Xuyen District today arrested Trinh Xuan Canh, 32, and Nguyen Huu An, 30, for looting assets from Formosa project invested by Taiwan (China).

The police also seized a 200-metre electric wire and a Panasonic welding machine from the two suspects.

On May 14, a parade in the economic zone opposing China's illegal placement of a drilling rig in Viet Nam's exclusive economic zone turned into a clash with foreign experts and workers at the project.

Some people took advantage of the situation to set fire to the houses of foreign workers and stole the company's assets.
