Ha Noi (VNS) — Authorities in Ha Noi yesterday seized more than 10 tonnes of goods worth billions of dong, suspected to have been smuggled, in Long Bien District.
Forty-seven types of consumer goods being carried in a container, including confectioneries, beverages and cosmetics, were seized while being unloaded at the Gia Lam Train Factory warehouse.
Bui Van Quang, the 34-year-old driver, could not produce documents establishing the origin of the goods. He said he was hired to transport them from Hai Phong to Ha Noi by Phu Dien Company, located in Duc Giang, Long Bien District.
If the ownership of the goods is not established, they will be dealt with according to the law.
The goods have been sealed and stored at a warehouse managed by the Hanoi Market Surveillance Agency. — VNS
