$6 million bet illegal, lawyer says

A rendering of the Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower, which includes a 70-story skyscraper and two 47-story apartment buildings
Law experts say a wager between a South Korean company and a group of war veterans is as illegal as other forms of gambling in Vietnam.


A lawyer has called a wager illegal in which several Vietnamese war veterans and construction workers bet a South Korean builder US$6 million it couldnt complete Vietnams tallest tower on schedule.

On Thursday, South Korea-owned Keangnam-Vina Company and several Vietnamese veterans signed a commitment in which the company pledged to wrap up the structural work of the Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower on schedule by October 2010.


If the South Korean firm misses the deadline, it would lose VND100 billion ($6 million) to Vietnamese veterans and vice versa.

Both the betting parties said they would donate the proceeds to charity.

The bet stemmed from an open letter issued on Thursday on the Cuu Chien Binh Viet Nam (Vietnam War Veterans) newspaper by several veterans, construction experts, and engineers who doubted the South Korean builder could conclude the tower as promised.

But speaking with Thanh Nien Saturday, lawyer Pham Quoc Hung from the Ho Chi Minh City Bar Association said the wager between the two sides was illegal.

The agreement would only be legal if it was designed as a penalty fee or bonus reward transaction between the investor and the contractor of the project, Hung elaborated.

Since the war veterans and construction experts have nothing to do with the tower project, the transaction would be sheer betting in a country where gambling is illegal, Hung said.

Under Vietnamese laws, locals are forbidden to gamble money and can face criminal charges when caught, Hung said.

But foreigners are allowed to gamble at several licensed casinos.

Le Hong Son, head of the HCMC-based Saigon Notary Office, agreed that the deal was illegal.

Speaking with Thanh Nien Saturday, Oh ChunSik , a manager at Keangnam Enterprises, said the firm had signed the agreement not for gambling purposes, but to protect its brand name instead.

Another allegation

In early October, several journalists sent a letter to the prime minister, the Hanoi government, and agencies concerned accusing Keangnam-Vina Company of selling apartments before completing them.

Vietnamese laws prohibit houses or apartments to be sold before the completion of the buildings foundation.

In late October, Deputy Prime Minister Truong Vinh Trong instructed the Hanoi municipal administration to probe the allegation and report back.

But Hanoi vice mayor Phi Thai Binh said inspectors had failed to report back Saturday as promised.

He attributed the delay to flooding in late October that left at least 22 people dead or missing in Hanoi.

He declined to comment on the betting deal.

Hanoi authorities looking into Korean project

The Hanoi Times - Hanoi is working o*n a report to submit to the government about the allegations that the Korean investor of the highest buiding in Vietnam, Keangnam, sold apartments illegally.

Phi Thai Binh, Vice Chairman of the Hanoi Peoples Committee, said the committee is compiling the report to submit to the Prime Minister.

In late October, Vice PM Truong Vinh Trong asked Hanoi authorities to check the allegations that Keangnam sold 40% of the apartments of its 48-storey twin tower illegally.

Under the Housing Law, investors are allowed to sell apartments after the design is approved and the works foundation is built. Even then, they are not allowed to accept more than 70% of an apartments value.

This weekend a local newspaper Vietnam Veteran Newspaper published a letter written by a group of veterans and construction engineers which said that Keangnam sold o*n-paper apartments and they promised to present VND100 billion ($5.88 million) if Keangnam completed the construction of the twin tower o*n schedule.

According to Keangnam-Vina, the investor of Keangnam project, and the group of veterans and engineers, the two sides will sign a commitment o*n November 18 witnessed by Hanoi officials and the media. Accordingly, if Keangnam cant complete this project in October 2008, it will have to pay VND100 billion to the group of veterans and engineers and vice versa.

Keangnam will not pay in cash with 11 apartments o*n the sixth floor of the 48-storey building and a penthouse.

Vice Chairman Phi Thai Binh said the committee hadnt received any invitation from Keangnam to be a witness yet.

Binh said Hanoi authorities expect that the project will be completed o*n schedule but everything must be done legally, he emphasised

I don't think he is jealous , he could have said something more direct like you ppl in HN don't deserve to have such towers built there , while Saigon's money being drawn to the North especially HN , thieves are just scums of society , Hanoi ppl infiltrate the South to cheat , oppress and abuse South VN since 1975 up to now , they took all the money and resourse that's why they have the money to bet on the completion of this Tower ,a desperate act to have a super tall to show off from a bunch of low class and babarians
