HÀ NỘI — The Embassy of Việt Nam in Malaysia has sent a diplomatic note to relevant ministries and agencies in Malaysia requesting official information about the detention of two Vietnamese fishing vessels with 28 fishermen on board on April 2. 

The Embassy is keeping close watch on the incident in order to verify information related to the case and to take appropriate measures to protect the arrested Vietnamese fishermen. 

Regarding the reported arrest of seven persons alleged to be Vietnamese in Osaka, Japan, the Consulate General of Việt Nam in Osaka said yesterday that Osaka police confirmed they were Vietnamese nationals.

The Consulate is cooperating closely with Japanese authorities to ensure the legitimate rights of the detained Vietnamese citizens. 

Meanwhile, Singapore police has affirmed that the death of a Vietnamese citizen after falling from the 15th floor of Hotel Boss in Singapore on March 29 was a suicide, according to the Vietnamese Embassy in Singapore.
