THAI NGUYEN (VNS) — The Thai Nguyen People's Court yesterday sentenced a 42-year-old man to death for illegally transporting drugs.
Nguyen Van Khoa, a resident of Hoa Thuong Commune in Dong Hy District, was caught while driving an automobile that was carrying nearly 33.5kg of heroin and 179 tablets of ecstasy in Phu Luong District's Son Cam Commune early on August 22, 2014.
Khoa said to the provincial police that he was hired by Ngo Van Thanh, 41, a resident of Thai Nguyen City, to transport the drugs. Thanh attempted suicide on August 27 last year. — VNS
