NGHE AN (VNS) — Police in the central province of Nghe An on Monday detained Nguyen Minh Thin for illegally recruiting and sending workers to Angola.
Thin and his father-in-law have been accused of swindling money from people wanting to work overseas, sending them to Angola and abandoning them, penniless and without means to get home.
Among the victims includes Nguyen Cong Nguyen, who lost US$6,000 in the scheme and later died of malaria after he was abandoned.
An investigation is ongoing. — VNS
