DONG NAI — Police in southern Dong Nai Province have submitted a proposal to the local People's Procuracy to prosecute Luo Zhen Bin, a Chinese man, and Dang Thi Lien, a Vietnamese woman, for circulating counterfeit currency.
The pair live together in Nhon Trach District's Hiep Phuoc Commune.
Allegations say that Luo regularly travelled to the Chinese border to bring counterfeit currency into Viet Nam for circulation.
Since July, 2011, Luo has transported 1,600 individual fake Chinese notes and the pair have circulated notes valued at VND97 million (US$4,600) in gold stores in Dong Nai and Binh Duong provinces.
After searching their house, police seized 1,054 fake Renminbi notes along with several fake documents. — VNS
