The six members of the cabinet who recently agreed to delay their resignations from the cabinet, at least until after the Manila Conference, again submitted their resignations on 17 October. In addition, Minister of Finance and Economy Au Truong Thanh has threatened to resign if the situation surrounding the arrest by Brigadier General Nguyen Ngoc Loan of the Directeur de Cabinet of the Ministry of Health is not satisfactorily resolved. Minister of Labor Nguyen Huu Hung, Minister of Education Nguyen Van Truong, and Thanh, who are members of the delegation planning to attend the Manila Conference, have threatened not to go to Manila. Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Nguyen Luu Vien, one of the six resigning ministers, is constantly receiving threatening telephone calls. Minister of Youth Vo Long Trieu, another of the six, said that General Loan informed him that he (Loan) has a thousand and one means of getting rid of Vien and all those connected with him.
