HCMC – Three Vietnamese men—Tran Chi Hao, Nguyen Quang Thang and Nguyen Thanh Trung—have been indicted for making arrangements for Chinese citizens to stay illegally in HCMC after the second coronavirus wave struck Danang a few months ago.
The HCMC People’s Procuracy has completed an indictment against the three men based on the 2015 Penal Code.
According to the indictment, in order to earn illegal profits, Hao and his accomplices operated a ring in which four Chinese citizens—Xie Zhiwen, Xie Tiancai, Wang and one more person with an unknown identity—were allowed to stay illegally in a house in Tan Tao Ward, Binh Tan District.
Trung, Thang and their accomplices jointly made arrangements to bring 10 Chinese citizens to two rental houses in the district and stay there illegally.
The sum of money that Trung, Thang and Hao earned from these illegal activities was VND8.5 million, VND9 million and VND3 million, respectively.
A representative of the HCMC People’s Procuracy stressed that the activities to arrange the illegal entry and stay of Chinese citizens to reap illegal profits when the country was being hit by Covid-19 are extremely serious and dangerous for the society and leave a negative impact on the city’s administrative management and social orders.
