Police from Ha Giang Province in northern Vietnam have arrested four local men involved in the smuggling of nine Chinese nationals into Vietnamese territory.

On Sunday, Ha Giang police issued an arrest warrant of exigent circumstances for Lu To San, Dinh Xuan Kien, Nguyen Duc Hai, and Nguyen Anh Quang, four tricenarian men from northern Vietnam.

They were criminally detained due to accusations of “brokering the illegal entry of other people” as prescribed in Vietnam’s Penal Code.

Earlier, a human smuggling ploy was detected by Ha Giang police around 2:00 am on December 22, when three suspicious seven-seaters refused to comply with an order to pull over by authorities.

However, police officers managed to catch up with the vehicles about an hour later.

The drivers of the three cars, later revealed to be Kien, Hai, and Quang, admitted that they were fetching nine Chinese border jumpers en route to Hanoi.

The Chinese nationals were told to desert the vehicles and disperse into the woods after they were spotted by police.

By the evening of December 22, all nine illegal migrants had been caught and brought to the authorities for a medical check-up in accordance with COVID-19 prevention protocols.

Further investigation indicated Lu To San as a complicit party, guiding the Chinese group to cross the border in Ha Giang’s Yen Minh District and entered Vietnam unlawfully.
