A Chinese man has been arrested in Da Nang City for masterminding the illegal entry of his fellow countryman into Vietnam in the guise of expert, with the abetment of a Vietnamese company director.
Police in Da Nang City on Friday detained Jiang Fei, a Chinese national, and his Vietnamese accomplice, Le Thi Kim Anh, director of Boviet Vietnam Investment Management Co., Ltd., on charge of arranging for others to illegally enter Vietnam.
As shown in the case file, Anh, 42, hailing from Lam Dong Province, was acquainted with many Chinese, including Jiang Fei, when she worked in Taiwan several years ago.
In September 2019, after returning to Vietnam, Anh was asked by the Chinese man to set up the aforementioned company in Da Nang City’s Hai Chau District, where she was made director with a monthly wage of VND12 million (US$525).
In fact, this company did not conduct any business in its registered scopes of business, including tourism, hospitality and sports.
In March this year, Fei asked Anh to use the company’s legal status to sponsor his fellow countryman, Wang Xu, to make entry into Vietnam under the cover of expert.
Then, Anh prepared all necessary documents and asked a service company to proceed with procedures for Wang Xu to enter Vietnam as her company’s expert at a cost of VND60 million ($2,600).
In fact, after his entry, Xu worked for Fei.
Further investigation into the case is underway.
Earlier in May, Da Nang police arrested three people in the ring that brought foreigners into Vietnam illegally under the cover of experts.
Using the same trick, they set up many companies and used their legal status to sponsor 19 South Koreans to enter Vietnam as specialists for their companies, but such foreigners later worked for other firms.
