HÀ NỘI — Police in Hà Nội’s Phúc Thọ District yesterday took over an investigation involving sand dredgers on the Hồng (Red) River that are suspected to be operating illegally.

On Friday, the city’s environment police found the vessels dredging sand at the border between Vân Hà Commune in Hà Nội’s Phúc Thọ District and Trung Hà Commune in Vĩnh Phúc Province’s Yên Lạc District.

Police seized five sand dredging boats, containing about 533 cubic metres of sand.

Phúc Thọ District Police will be investigating the case. Illegal sand dredgers usually operate at border areas between provinces so they can escape easily thanks to loose co-operation between provincial authorities. — VNS
