HA NOI (VNS)— The Vietnamese and Chinese police have successfully saved two Vietnamese citizens, a businessman and his interpreter, from Chinese kidnappers.
According to the police, the two Vietnamese citizens had gone to China in February for a business visit. They were kidnapped by a Chinese ring on March 8. The kidnappers had demanded a ransom of VND7 billion (US$331,800) from the businessman's family.
The businessman's wife transferred an amount of RMB 60,000 ($96,900) to the kidnappers. As she could not contact the kidnappers after having transferred the money, she then decided to report the case to the police.
The police from the two countries are investigating the case. — VNS
