Tay Ninh (VNA) - The People's Court of the southern province of Tay Ninh on December 24 started the first-instance trial on a ring illegally sending people to the other side of the border despite a ban on leaving and entering the country via trails to prevent COVID-19 outbreak.

Tran Van Hau, Ho Van Thanh, Truong Ngoc Danh, Le Van Qui, and Cao Van Phung, residing in Ben Thuy district of Tay Ninh province, and Phan Thi Diem from Ho Chi Minh City’s Cu Chi district, were sentenced to imprisonment from two years and a half to six years for illegally taking Chinese people to Cambodia.

According to the investigations, under the brokerage of Kieu, Hau, Thieu, Danh, and Qui had twice organized the illegal sending of nine Chinese from Vietnam to Cambodia in June 2020.

Hau got 6 million VND from the act, Danh 20 million VND, and Thieu and Qui, each 7 million VND. Meanwhile, Phung committed the crime once, earning 1 million VND.

People smuggling is also spreading the virus:
It was announced today, 26 December 2020, that a Vietnamese migrant worker in Myanmar, who was smuggled back to Vietnam via Thailand and Cambodia, has tested positive for Covid-19. It is difficult, and almost impossible, to say where the man picked up the virus infection. He was asymptomatic.

Man illegally entering Vietnam from Cambodia tests positive for novel coronavirus

Le Thuc Tri, 32, was quarantined at Vinh Long Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases Hospital on Thursday without exhibiting typical Covid-19 symptoms like fever, coughing or breathing difficulties, the Vinh Long Department of Health said.

But a test conducted by HCMC Pasteur Institute later found he was positive with the novel coronavirus, the department said Saturday.

Seven people who had been in close contact with him: his parents, a police officer and four medical workers, have been quarantined at the Mang Thit District medical center.

Authorities are conducting contact tracing to determine possible further transmissions, said Nguyen Thanh Ngoc, head of People's Committee of the southern Tay Ninh, which borders Cambodia.

Tri traveled from Myanmar to Thailand by truck on Dec. 15 and stayed there until Dec. 22, when he and six others got on another truck bound for Cambodia on Dec. 23. On Dec. 24, Tri was driven to a border gate in Tay Ninh, then to HCMC, then got on a different bus to Vinh Long. Throughout his journey, he had made contact with several other people.

After disembarking at Vinh Long, Tri traveled to his mother's house. His mother however reported him to authorities so he could be quarantined on Dec. 24.

As part of existing Covid-19 prevention measures, anyone who wish to enter Vietnamese border must report doing so to border guards, and must be quarantined immediately upon entry. Throughout his journey, Tri sat on the back of multiple trucks, among other methods, to evade authorities.

Local police and border guards are investigating his entry.

^ Very serious actions that man took on himself to risk himself to be a victim of covid-19, possibly not thinking he may also be the course of the spread too. Hats off too his responsible mother for alerting the authorities of his misdoings in the aid of travel though 3 countries. How many other people I wonder who have done likewise without the authorities being informed.
Always "hope" but never "expect".
