Police officers in Da Nang confirmed on Monday they had arrested and initiated legal proceedings against two men for transporting four Chinese border jumpers in late December.

The prosecution decisions for Dinh Xuan Hien, 29, and Dinh Cong Quan, 31, both hailing from the northern province of Thai Binh, were approved by the Da Nang People’s Procuracy.

According to preliminary information, a team of traffic police officers at Da Nang’s Hoa Hiep post detected violation signs on a seven-seater car driven by Dinh Xuan Hien and pulled it over at around 0:50 am on December 27.

The officers found Dinh Cong Quan and four Chinese people, including Wu Jia Wen, 25, Wang Cheng, 23, Yang Xiao Yu, 29 and Huang Zhi Min, 21, in the car.

As the four Chinese nationals failed to present their passports and visas to prove their legal entry into Vietnam upon the authorities’ request, the Hoa Hiep traffic police team transferred the case to competent agencies.

The Chinese group later admitted that they unlawfully entered Vietnam from China in order to go to Cambodia for work with the assistance of a middleman ring related to a person called Lao Cui.

The Cambodian side covered all costs of their trip.

On the evening of December 25, the four Chinese people and Lao Cui illicitly crossed the border into Vietnam. 

At dawn on December 26, some people, whose identity and background remain unknown, brought the Chinese border jumpers down the mountain by motorbike. 

From there, the group was transported in two cars to Hanoi. They said that they cannot remember the details of the cars as well as the drivers.

The Chinese group then changed to another car driven by Hien and Quan in turns.

They were discovered while running through the Hai Van Tunnel to the territory of Da Nang.

All of the aforementioned people were sent to quarantine facilities in the city for COVID-19 prevention and control as per regulations.

Following the investigation into the case, authorities prosecuted and ordered the arrest of the two Vietnamese drivers for making arrangements for other people to enter Vietnam illegitimately.

At the same time, the security and investigation authorities transferred the four Chinese people to the local immigration department for handling according to its competence.
