HA NOI (VNS) — About 7,000 bottles of smuggled antibiotics and medical equipment were seized while being delivered to a clinic on Wednesday, said Ha Noi Environmental Police Division Lieutenant Colonel Pham Giang Son.
The drivers of the two three-wheeler vehicles, on which the smuggled goods were being transported, could not show any documents regarding the origins of the drugs and equipment which, they reportedly said, were going to be delivered to the 168 Clinic on Ngoc Hoi Street.
The clinic's staff member, who was to receive the goods, was a foreigner and could not show any legal documents related to the drugs, a computer and a machine used for gynecology.
The 168 Clinic, formerly known as Thanh Tri Clinic, has earlier been penalised by the police for violating environmental norms.
The case is under further investigation. — VNS
