HẢI PHÒNG — Police in Hải Phòng, in co-ordination with the municipal customs department, have started legal proceedings against two men for allegedly making fake import licences and illegally importing scrap.
The two men are Nguyễn Ngọc Hiếu, 44, director of the Hà Nam Trade and Services Co Ltd, from Hải An District, and Nguyễn Bá Toàn, 26, from An Dương District.
The two men allegedly falsified documents for two companies including the Hương Quỳnh Cẩm Hưng Co Ltd in Cẩm Hưng Commune, Cẩm Giàng District in the northern province of Hải Dương, and the DFG Joint-stock Company in Quang Trung Ward, Hải Dương City in Hải Dương Province.
The two companies used the fake papers together with customs documents to illegally import more than 10,500 tonnes of scrap worth more than VNĐ11 billion (US$478,200).
After searching the homes and offices of the two men, police seized several seals relating to both individuals and companies.
In July this year, police in Hải Phòng also started legal proceedings against two men on the same charges.
The two men were Nguyễn Đức Trường, 48, from the northern province of Ninh Bình, director of the Đức Đạt Trade and Export Co Ltd, and Dương Văn Phương, 35, from Ninh Bình Province, who was an employee at the company.
The two men made fake papers alongside their customs documents to import nearly 3,000 containers of scrap via different ports in Hải Phòng City, HCM City and Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province. — VNS
