“Without Tien’s help, Duong couldn’t have carries out the crime. So Tien must be responsible for the consequences of the case.”
The court also dismissed the appeal of Duong’s friend Tran Dinh Thoai, 27, to have his 16-year sentence reduced. Thoai bought the knife with which Duong killed the six people, and failed to report Duong’s conspiracy to the authorities.
