Vietnam Shows How To Clean Up The Banking System: Ex-Banker Faces Death Penalty For Fraud

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The lack of prosecution of bankers responsible for the great financial collapse has been a hotly debated topic over the years, leading to the coinage of such terms as "Too Big To Prosecute", the termination of at least one corrupt DOJ official, the revelation that Eric Holder is the most useless Attorney General in history, and even members of the judicial bashing other members of the judicial such as in last night's essay by district judge Jed Rakoff. And naturally, the lack of incentives that punish cheating and fraud, is one of the main reasons why such fraud will not only continue but get bigger and bigger, until once again, the entire system crashes under the weight of all the corruption and all the Fed-driven malinvestment. But what can be done? In this case, Vietnam may have just shown America the way - use the death penalty on convicted embezzling bankers. Because if one wants to promptly stop an end to financial crime, there is nothing quite like the fear of death to halt it.

Bloomberg reports that a Vietnam court will consider the death penalty for a Vu Quoc Hao, the former general director of Agribank Financial Leasing Co. who is charged with embezzling 531 billion dong. While that sounds like a whole lot of dong, converted into USD it is only $25 million, or what Goldman would call "weekend lunch money." Just imagine how much cleaner Wall Street would be, where the typical bank fraud is generally in the billions, if bankers and other white collar criminals had the fear of death if caught manipulating petty prices or outright stealing amounts that are considered petty cash by most of the 0.001%.

But back to Vietnam and its shining example:

The trial comes as the government seeks to shore up Vietnamese banks saddled with Southeast Asia’s highest rate of bad debt and turn around an economy that grew last year at the slowest pace since 1999. The central bank governor vowed to crack down on violations by groups of shareholders working against banking reforms last year.

 

Eleven defendants, including Hao, 58, and Hai, are charged with embezzlement, mismanagement, abuse of power and fraud, according to a statement on the court’s website. Prosecutors allege that Hao and Hai formed 10 fake financial leasing contracts to disperse almost 800 billion dong.

 

At the trial yesterday, Hao said he regrets his violations and hopes the judges will give other defendants lighter sentences, Tuoi Tre newspaper reported today. The verdict and sentencing is expected to be announced Nov. 15, according to the newspaper.

 

Under Vietnam law, those convicted of embezzling property valued at 500 million dong or more, or creating “other particularly serious consequences,” can be sentenced to life imprisonment or death.

 

“The party, the government, prosecutors and our courts will give stiff verdicts in these types of cases,” Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, said on the sidelines of an anti-corruption conference in Hanoi yesterday. “We need to make our regulations and legal framework tighter to reduce and prevent corruption.”

 

“It would be a signal: You could be executed for being caught doing large-scale corruption,” said Adam McCarty, the Hanoi-based chief economist at Mekong Economics. “It has implications for the whole bank restructuring the government is about to do. They want to really dig into these bad debt issues and find out who is responsible for the problems.”

And while one can dream, an outcome such as this in the US is impossible: after all it is these same embezzling bankers that control the legislative and judicial branches (the executive branch is too busy with 404 website errors), which is why deterrence of any substantial scale will never take place in the US and small, medium and large-scale theft will continue unabated, with the occasional slaps on the wrist, until there is nothing left to steal.

OJ simpson was ordered to pay 12 million plus for the murder of a white woman(in civil court after prosecutors embarrassed themselves in the criminal trial)

we can therefore equate the crime of murder in the highest degree to the theft of 12 million dollars or more

so therefore, theft of 12 million or more should be eligible for the same punishments as murder of a white woman by a black man(the worst kind of murder if you take history as an example)

the worst of these punishments being the death penalty for premeditated murder/theft

And Hungary rid themselves of its central bank. "According to a report on the German-language website “National Journal,” Orbán has now moved to unseat the usurers from their throne. The popular, nationalistic prime minister told the IMF that Hungary neither wants nor needs further “assistance” from that proxy of the Rothschild-owned Federal Reserve Bank. No longer will Hungarians be forced to pay usurious interest to private, unaccountable central bankers. Instead, the Hungarian government has assumed sovereignty over its own currency and now issues money debt free, as it is needed. The results have been nothing short of remarkable. The nation’s economy, formerly staggering under deep indebtedness, has recovered rapidly and by means not seen since National Socialist Germany." August 2013

And the ECB's response: FRANKFURT (Reuters) Oct 9, 2013 - The European Central Bank has warned Hungary against tampering with central bank independence and pushed it to take the ECB's opinions more seriously.

While emotionally satisfying to the victim, executions don't actually prevent crime for a few reasons:

1) The perp always thinks they will get away with it

2) The Corzone factor - laws are for peasants to keep them in line

I'd be much happier with tearing down the shit house and making those fuckers work at McD's for the rest of their lives.  There is no hell worse then losing your wealth and status.  I don't need them dead, although years of suffering and social stigma would fit the bill nicely.

True enough, but the best part of justice is revenge, yes?

And its always different THIS time. Parents try to explain to their children the hazards of life, yet the children ALWAYS think they or this time will be different. This is because history tells us largely that to do what we WANT to do, is usually the worse course of action, so we spend a huge amount of time rationailizing why this time or I am different and the rules of the past do not apply. This mentality goes from bottom to top of society. Ideologues convinced that ideologies, that have been tried and failed to the tune of millions dying, can be successfully acomplished this time because we are more modern, with technology and its just different this time. We can drink and drive becasue we are different or better, we can smoke like a brush fire without fear becasue we are different or better. It is a symptom of our stupidity and arrogance that we refuse to learn. And fuck equality. No one wants equality when they ALL think they are smarter, more enlightened and just plain better than everyone else.

It's all about spending the energy that will maximize the benefit.  Focus on revenge or rebuilding the structure to make the same corruptions harder? 

Plus executions can get out of hand and deliver more power to those who shouldn't have it.  See the French Revolution and la Terreur.

Well as said removing them from active society to protect our society would work best imo. Seeing the severity of the damage these criminals have done I would think starting out with a base 20 years of prison would be sufficient. Single cells preffered and a diminished amount of communication with the outiside world.

The reason I am not for a death sentence is mostly because we could be wrong and sometimes we throw innocent people in jail. And killing innocent people is not something that would help anybody at all.

To me, the appropriate sentence for banker crimes is to divest them of all their wealth and give them a life sentence as door greeter at Wal-Mart.  They can learn all about how to apply for an EBT card, how to seek medical assistance using Walmart insurance and Medicaid, etc.  I would even start shopping at Walmart again (going on 10 years since I stepped foot in one).

These comments sometimes amaze me.  While I agree that justice is a good thing, isn't our justice system only as good as those overseeing it?  Can you tell me you honestly expect Obama and Holder to fairly and honestly prosecute crimes?  We're seeing Holder currently extort our financial institutions in return for a pass on prosecuting top management.  In a truly economic free world, I sincerely believe that the people would prosecute via their checkbooks... if you don't like what Dimon or other CEOs are doing, don't do business with them.  But once we've allowed these corporations to get in bed with the politicians (read Corzine) then we can't expect a fair justice system.  The only real solution is to let these fraudulent institutions fail, reduce the size of the gov't, and do some sort of regulating of donations to political campaigns.  Right now it seems like those going to jail are those that aren't paying off the right people.

No, its is exactly the rule of law that is alive and well here. It is the very manipulation of it coupled with no regard for common sense that has allowed what is happening to occur. Never forget to thank the attorneys for their role in this as well. Tacitus circa 190 ad ( a republic is most corrupt when its laws are at their most numerous) this is a very old lesson that quite obviously we have yet to learn.

We learned that already.  Greenspan learned at least back in the 1960's, that 1920's FED policy lead into the Great Depression.  He never forgot the lesson, doubling down on 1920's FED policy anyway.

Congress was warned what would happen if Glass Steagall was dismantled.  They dismantled Glass Steagall anyway.  The SEC knew leverage above 12 to 1 was dangerous and gave the investment banks leverage waivers anyway.

THE LESSON IS ALREADY WELL KNOWN.

So let's stop the pretending that we still have a lesson to learn.  Greenspan took the lending standards to zero to deliberately create a housing bubble, not because he was stupid and didn't know any better.  The housing bubble occurred by design, not accident.  President Bush didn't just happen to come up with the Ownership Society program by coincidence, when Greenspan was creating a housing bubble.  It was deliberate, by design, not an accident.

Obviously we didnt. The proof is in the pudding. Keep electing attorneys into political positions. How do you suppose glass stegal was over-stepped in the first placed. Legistlatively perhaps? A bunch of attorney lobbyist were hired by citi group and travelers ins during the clinton term to push through its merger and the remaining vestiges of glass stegal were obliderated. Travelers/citi group merger at the time was the largest in history. It also ushered in the derivatives era. Once the remaining barriers between ins, finance, and banking were dissolved the tbtf's were at liberty to have their attorneys concoct private off the books multilateral. contracts involving the once seperated diciplines to the toon of 634 trillion.

In the US you could get the death penalty for mentioning such justice.

I call BS.

Anyone remember the melamine in pet food?

The Chinease took two that were responsible and put a bullet in each of their heads in a public execution.

One month later they caught someone else doing the same shit.

Execution doesn't stop the practice, it just prevents the repeat offender.

" ...the revelation that Eric Holder is the most useless Attorney General in history."

 

Useless to who?  Holder is a great benefit to a group of priviledged people.

If we shot all the banksters in the U.S., we should also shoot their brothers in crime in Hollywood and the lamestream media.
