HA NOI (VNS) — The Ha Noi market watch department's division 1 yesterday seized 1,140 electric-bike batteries and 7,000 motor bearings, worth VND500 million (US$23,800), in Long Bien district's Duc Giang commune.
The owner of the goods, named Tran Thi Diep, could not show the invoices and documents indicating the place of origin of the products to the market watch officials. She admitted that all the products were contraband that were meant to be sold to retail shops.
Division 1 officials shifted the seized products to their warehouse for further investigation.
According to Nguyen Dang Khoa, captain of division 1, the smuggling and trading of contraband are increasing during the last months of the year. Division 1 will enhance its operations to curb the transport of such products from the northern provinces to Ha Noi. –—VNS
