Police in Ho Chi Minh City, southern Vietnam, have put a 63-year-old Taiwanese man on wanted list for allegedly smuggling.

The wanted man is Lin Yung Hsiang, who was prosecuted on charges of smuggling on June 1 but fled away later, the municipal police said Saturday.

The smuggling was conducted through the legal status of southern Binh Duong Province-based Trang Bach Production and Trading Company, and the smuggled cargo was delivered to the city’s Cat Lai Port.

Lin, the company’s owner, hired people to carry out customs procedures to intentionally import goods that were not the same as in the customs declaration form submitted, police said.

The customs agency requested that the shipment be returned to the consignor, but Lin continued to hire people to seek ways to import the cargo containing food and consumer goods.

The value of the smuggled goods was estimated at some VND620 million (US$26,600), police said.

Such acts were enough to constitute the crime of smuggling, investigators stated.

After determining that the suspect had fled from his temporary residence, the city’s police issued a arrest warrant against him on June 27.

Investigators called for Lin to give himself up to police to enjoy the leniency policy of the laws of Vietnam.

Everyone has the right to arrest the suspect and escort him to any nearest police station, people’s committee or people’s procuracy, investigators said. 

The arrest and detention of the suspect should be promptly reported to the city’s police, they added.
