THE risks of doing business in Vietnam have been dramatically illustrated by the trevails of two Qantas staff, Tristan Freeman and Daniela Marsilli, who worked senior roles for Jetstar Pacific. Qantas Group has a 27% stake in the carrier. Its partner, the Vietnam Government, launched an investigation into US$31m fuel hedging losses sustained by the carrier, the country’s second biggest, separated Marsilli and Freeman from their families, and interrogated them over a six month while refusing to allow them to leave the country. The enquiry was suddenly dropped without explanation. Both are now back in Australia but Jetstar Pacific’s CEO Luong Hoai Nam is in jail. See full Sydney Morning Herald Story.
