HCMC Peopleâs Committee has assigned its police and concerned agencies to prevent debtors from going abroad while they were unable to clear debts.
The committee also ordered the city Social Insurance Agency, Labor Federation and Tax Bureau to represent debtors filing for bankruptcy to the city Peopleâs Court.
Vice chairwoman of the committee Nguyen Thi Thu Ha Wednesday asked the Immigration Department and the city police to stop Korean, Lee Tae Hee, from leaving the country because his company still owed 97 workers their December salaries worth more than VND250 million (US$14,300).
Ha ordered the municipal Department of External Relations to cooperate with the Republic of Korea General Consulate to force Lee to pay the money.
Local authorities have sealed off the embroidering machines at his company in District 12 in lieu of payment.
