Update: December, 21/2013 - 09:10

HA NOI (VNS)  — The municipal People's Court sentenced two former taxi drivers to jail on Thursday on fraud charges.

On July 11, Vu Van Khoa and Vu Van Chuyen, both 24, charged 53-year-old Kano Matsuyuki of Japan over VND7 million (US$330) for a taxi running from Noi Bai Airport to his hotel in Dong Da District – over 20 times the regulated fair.

Khoa turned himself in after Kano reported the incident to the police, but Chuyen managed to evade capture until the end of July.

Khoa received an eight-month term, while Chuyen was sent down for 10 months.— VNS
