TAY NINH (VNS) — Two Chinese nationals were sentenced to 11 years in jail by the Tay Ninh Province's People's Court on Thursday for illegally trafficking money.
The two were accused of illegally trafficking VND18.2 billion (roughly US$840,000) across the Vietnamese border into Cambodia.
The accused, Liu Wei and Tan Zhang had packed the money in brief cases and carton boxes to be transported to Cambodia.
They also confessed to having smuggled money out of Viet Nam many times before without declaring it at the border customs post. — VNS
