QUẢNG NINH — Two Chinese nationals have been detained while attempting to smuggle a 13-day-old baby out of Viet Nam, Quảng Ninh border guards said on Wednesday.
Li Bao Shan and Wang Wei were found with an undocumented baby when the border guards searched a Hà Nội-registered car in the area around Mốc 13 Village, Quảng Đức Commune, which is adjacent to the Chinese border.
The two admitted they had been trying to smuggle the baby to China for sale.
An investigation into the case is on-going.
Should they be found guilty of human trafficking, the men might face jail terms of between five and ten years and fines ranging from VNĐ20 million to VNĐ100 million (US$870-4,300). — VNS
