Bui Tien Dung, former general director of the Project Management Unit No. 18 under the Vietnamese Transport Ministry, was brought to court on Wednesday for gambling and giving bribes.

The Hanoi People's Court also tried eight of his accomplices for gambling, organizing gambling, and giving bribes, according to local newspaper Youth.

Dung, detained in January 2006 for making bets on international soccer matches, spent 759,800 U.S. dollars on gambling, and 39,000 dollars and 550 million Vietnamese dong (roughly 34,400 dollars) on trying to bribe some influential figures, so that they would campaign for slighter charges against him.

The trial is expected to finish on Friday.
