TAY NINH (VNS) — The Tay Ninh Forest Rangers seized 120cu.m of wood being illegally transported by four trucks near Duong Minh Chau Town in the southern Tay Ninh Province earlier this week.
All four truck drivers failed to show proper documents for their cargo after they were stopped for inspection by the provincial ranger force.
The drivers said they had been hired by some wood merchants to transport the wood from Cambodia. The authorities have not been able to contact the merchants so far.
During the first nine months of the year, the Tay Ninh Forest Rangers detected more than 80 cases of illegal transportation of more than 400cu.m of wood. Truckers often attempted to operate during the night to avoid detection by the rangers' patrols. — VNS
