THỪA THIÊN HUẾ — Police in central Thừa Thiên-Huế Province yesterday seized 1.3 tonnes of animal organs without clear origin being transported from central Đà Nẵng City to Quảng Trị Province for consumption.

At about 3pm yesterday, traffic police in Thừa Thiên Huế Province’s Thủy Phương Commune pulled over a truck for regular inspection and found 26 foam boxes containing animal organs.

Each box contained 50kg of animal organs.

The truck driver, Nguyễn Quang Vĩnh, in Đà Nẵng City failed to show papers of origin for the goods.

He admitted he was hired by a woman only known as Xuân in the same city to transport the cargo to a customer in central Quảng Trị Province.

Xuân allegedly told him the boxes contained fish from the sea.

The police have transferred the seized animal organs to the provincial Animal Veterinary Department. — VNS
