HÀ NỘI — Five people are being prosecuted for allegedly faking official State documents.
Hà Nội Police on Tuesday said they had arrested Tống Nguyên Tuệ, 29, Ngô Bảo Trân, 25, Vương Xuân Mạnh, 33, Nguyễn Thị Thơm – Mạnh’s wife, and Nguyễn Quang Tín, 27.
In December last year, the Korean Government had a new visa policy for people living in Hà Nội, Đà Nẵng and HCM City. Under the policy, people living in those cities can apply for visa to enter Korea for many times in five years.
It is alleged those arrested were faking documents to make people who didn't live in those cities look like they were so they could apply for Korean visas.
Police say the counterfeit documents were being sold for VNĐ4-5 million (US$170-220) per book.
During a police raid, 22 temporary residence books were recovered and 13 of them discovered to be fake.
Investigations are continuing. — VNS
