Update: April, 05/2014 - 08:53

HCM CITY (VNS)  — The Supreme People's Court in HCM City yesterday rejected the appeal of a 32-year-old Thai national, Chimongkol Suaracha and handed him death penalty for illegal drug trafficking.

During the first trial, the HCM City People's Court was informed that the Vietnamese authorities had detected nearly 2 kilograms of heroin concealed in two albums in Chimongkol's luggage as she entered Viet Nam's Tan Son Nhat International Airport on October 1, 2012.

The Thai woman, who is a university graduate, had been promised a job at an automobile company in Viet Nam by a stranger, before being taken to Brazil, where she met drug dealers and collaborated with them to hide the drugs in her luggage and smuggled them into Viet Nam. — VNS
