HƯNG YÊN — Police from the northern province of Hưng Yên have seized over 540 litres of wine without clear origin papers in Toàn Thắng Commune’s Trương Xá Village.

The wine was confiscated after the police caught red-handed Cao Văn Nam, 30, on Tuesday, carrying 18 cans of wine to sell in the northern province of Quảng Ninh’s Móng Cái Town.

Nam admitted to the police he was hired to transport the wine. He failed to show documents proving where the wine came from.

The police are conducting an investigating to determine the place of origin of the wine.

Previously, between April 10 and 12, the police seized 1,400 litres of wine of unknown origin in the commune. According to the initial investigation, the wine was allegedly produced from industrial alcohol and spice. — VNS
