Mr. Nguyen Hong Lam
The Party Secretary of Quoc Oai District, Nguyen Van Tho, reported that Lam had asked to be absent from a meeting of the district’s Party Standing Committee on December 26 “for family reasons.”
He had turned off his mobile phone and had not returned to the office, Tho said.
Investigations from the police show that at 9pm on December 25, 2017, Lam drove a black Camry out of the committee’s headquarters. Half an hour later, he parked his car at a parking lot at No 113 on Tran Duy Hung Street in Cau Giay District, which was under the management of the Ministry of Science and Technology.
Lam then walked to Alley 115 on the same street. By 9:55pm, he was moving towards the Đền Lừ Lake in Hoàng Mai District, some 13.5 kilometres from the parking lot.
“Since then, no family members or colleagues has been able to contact Lam, neither did they know where he went and for what purposes,” head of the Hanoi criminal police division Duong Van Giap said in a press release.
The division requested all citizens, agencies and organisations to immediately report any information they have on Nguyen Hong Lamvia the number 0692196451, or the mobile number 0983304879 of policeman Hoang The Hien, or come directly to the police’s office at No 7 on Thien Quang Street in Hai Ba Trung District.
According to the latest information, Hanoi police have found a dead body in Hoang Mai District, suspected to be the body of Lam.
