Vietnamese men rescued from Chinese-related trafficking

Vietnamese men rescued from Chinese-related trafficking

Four young men from a coastal region in south-central Vietnam have been saved from a trafficking scheme involving their transfer to China.

Police in Quang Nam Province said Wednesday that their cooperation with relevant Vietnamese and Chinese agencies helped to thwart an attempt to illegally transfer four people from a six-man group across the Vietnam-China border.

The men, from a local ethnic minority group in Quang Nam, were deceived by 42-year-old Hoang Cong Hoang, a resident of Thai Nguyen Province in northeastern Vietnam.

An investigation into the crime revealed that Hoang first contacted H.V.T., a resident of the province in 2017, while the middle-aged man was working at a local gold mine.

In early March, he arrived at H.V.T.’s home and coaxed six of H.V.T.’s young neighbors and relatives into working in Hanoi with the guarantee of a high salary.  

Ho Van Tieu, 19; Ho Van Thi, 18; Ho Van Dao, 15; Ho Van Tham, 18; Ho Van Dip, 24; and Ta Cao Vai, 19, were all swayed by Hoang’s convincing proposition and agreed to set out for Hanoi on March 6.

Instead, the group found themselves at Hoang’s house in Thai Nguyen Province, near the capital, en route to the Vietnam-China border in Lang Son province.

On March 10, authorities saved Tieu, Thi, Dao, and Tham from the conspiracy at the border crossing.

The two other victims had already been taken to China.

Vietnamese police are still attempting to rescue the remaining victims and catch Hoang.
