HAI PHONG (VNS)– Police in northern Hai Phong City have prosecuted Vu Trong Thang, 49, of Le Chan District, for appropriating property by making fake visas for 12 people to go overseas.
The suspect admitted to the police that he established two fake companies to offer visa services. His victims are poor farmers who sold their land or borrowed money with a high interest rate so they could work overseas.
Seven of the 12 victims are already in Malaysia, while the rest have paid for his services but have yet to depart. The plan was for them to stop over in Malaysia and then fly to countries like England, Australia, Japan and South Korea. The suspect received nearly VND1.7 billion (US$80,000). — VNS
