HA NOI — The central province of Quang Tri People's Court yesterday sentenced a woman to death for trans-national drug trafficking.
Dau Xuan Duyen, 55, a resident of central Nghe An Province's Hung Dung Commune, also had her property seized.
According to testimony, Duyen passed Cau Treo Border Gate in central Ha Tinh Province to order eight cakes of heroin from a Lao woman, which was hidden into two slats of a bed.
Duyen was caught while transporting the bed in the province on August 25, 2011.
Between last May and August, Duyen had managed to transport 18 cakes of heroin and 4,600 tablets of ecstasy. — VNS
