HÀ NỘI – The People’s Court in Hà Nôị has sentenced four men to death for illegally transporting 75 bricks of heroin.
They are Trần Văn Đông, 26, and Trần Văn Trường, 32, residents of Ea Kar District in the Central Highlands province of Đắk Lắk; and Nguyễn Minh Trường, 20, and Nguyễn Triệu Vy, 21, from Cam Lâm and Cam Ranh District in the central province of Khánh Hòa.
According to indictment, on April 14, 2016, the drug prevention police under the Ministry of Public Security found Vy and Trường behaving suspiciously while driving a motorbike. The police asked them to stop and seized 30 bricks of heroin.
With the help of the testimony of Vy and Trường, the police urgently arrested two more members of the ring - Trần Thanh Đông and Nguyễn Minh Trường.
Following investigation, the police clarified that on April 12, 2016, Trường travelled to Hà Nội following Đông’s directions to meet Vy, and then both went to Chương Mỹ District of Hà Nội to get the drugs.
On the way to the meeting place, they received a strange phone call asking them go to Mai Châu District in northern Hòa Bình Province on motorcycles to collect the drugs.
Vy and Trường on the way to Hòa Bình Province delivered their motorbikes to two strange people to hide drugs in the trunk.
