Authorities in the southern Vietnamese city of Can Tho have ordered the boss of a massively indebted seafood company to return from the U.S. or provide medical records for her alleged cancer treatment.

Pham Thi Dieu Hien is general director of Binh An Seafood Joint Stock Company (Bianfishco), which owes more than VND 1.27 trillion (USD 61.4 million) to nine banks, a credit organization, and scores of farmers.

She is thought to personally owe VND 0.29 trillion (almost USD 14 million).
