NGHE AN (VNS)– Central Nghe An Province People's Court handed the death penalty to two transnational drug dealers yesterday.

The accused, Nguyen Trong Tuan, 42, and Xong No Cha, 34, both from Nghe An, were leaders of a large-scale cross-border drug trafficking ring.

Three other members of the ring, including a Laotian, received life imprisonment.

According to the indictment, between October and December, 2012, the ring smuggled 208 cakes of heroin weighing 72.8 kg and 321 methamphetamine pills from Laos to Viet Nam. The drugs were then sold in China and other countries.

Another member of the ring, Laotian Ha No Chua, who sold heroin to Vietnamese dealers, is wanted by Interpol for further investigation. - VNS
