HA NOI (VNS)— The Ha Noi People's Court on Wednesday sentenced two men from a labour export firm in Ha Noi's Tay Ho District for defrauding labourers.
Dinh Hung Quang, 55, and his son Dinh Hong Giang, 27, from the northern province of Ninh Binh were given 20 year and 12 year jail terms respectively for cheating 67 workers out of over VND7 billion (US$336,000), after promising to find work for them in South Korea.
The two men signed labour contracts with workers and faked documents for people who wanted to work in South Korea. They collected from $3,600 to $10,500 from each labourer. They have so far returned VND540 million($25,900). — VNS
