HAI DUONG (VNS)— A 27-year-old truck driver was found smuggling nearly 1,000 chopping boards made from valuable timber in the northern Hai Duong Province's Gia Loc District.
The boards were made from rare nghien (Burretio-dendron hsienmu) wood and the driver failed to submit the legal document for them.
Nghien wood, an endangered species of flowering plant of the Tiliaceae family, is found in Viet Nam and China.
Local authorities are investigating. — VNS
