Nearly 1,200 drug-related criminals remain wanted in Vietnam

Published

on

Nearly 1,200 drug-related criminals, most of whom are classified as dangerous and particularly dangerous, are still hiding in the community, heard the Investigation Police Department on Drug-Related Crimes’ meeting in Hanoi on Friday afternoon.

A 10-year summary on hunts for wanted drug-related criminals was conducted at the meeting.

Accordingly, authorities across Vietnam uncovered more than 208,000 cases and arrested nearly 322,000 suspects of drug-related crimes, seizing almost 7.8 metric tons of heroin, and 11.7 metric tons and more than five million tablets of synthetic drug, from 2010 to the end of the second quarter of 2020.

Many arrests with particularly large drug seizures in recent years showed the increasingly reckless nature and scale of drug trafficking and transportation. 

A large number of drug-related criminals managed to run away from police and continued to lead lines of drug transportation and trade.

Up to now, 1,185 drug-related criminals have not been caught in the country. Most of those wanted are classified as dangerous and particularly dangerous.

They use many tricks to hide and conceal their whereabouts, such as changing their names, undergoing esthetic surgery, changing their places of residence, forging personal papers, creating legal covers, or hiding in remote places.

There was a case where two wanted drug-related criminals built a trench with solid walls in Ta De and Lung Xa Villages of Long Luong Commune in Van Ho District, located in the northern province of Son La, and armed themselves with weapons and ammunition to fight against authorities.

Speaking at Friday’s meeting, Senior Lieutenant General Le Quy Vuong, Deputy Minister of Public Security, emphasized that wanted drug-related criminals are no less than dangerous and even particularly dangerous.

Therefore, chasing them is extremely difficult, with many police officers even sacrificing their health and lives.

Vuong anticipated that drug crime will remain complicated in Vietnam in the coming time, with a high number of wanted criminals.

He reminded police units and local authorities to focus on improving the quality of basic professional tasks, especially in key areas and places with complicated crime situations and drug evils.

The deputy minister also attached great importance to the development and use of science, technology, and communications, as well as support from local people, for successful hunts of drug-related criminals.

Three districts in Ho Chi Minh City can propose social distancing: official

Published

on

Authorities of District 6, Tan Binh District, and Binh Tan District in Ho Chi Minh City can seek permission to implement social distancing if necessary, Tu Luong, deputy director of the municipal department of Information and Communications, said at a meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee will approve social distancing in areas at high risk of infection, according to Luong.

The said three districts are where COVID-19 patients and their contacts have visited over the past days.

Besides, authorities of District 1, District 3, District 6, District 10, Phu Nhuan District, Binh Tan District, and Tan Phu District were requested to inspect the places patient 1,347, Vietnam’s first locally-transmitted COVID-19 patient after nearly three months, had visited and to seal them off when necessary. 

The city’s authorities emphasized the importance of criteria guiding the behaviors of organizational and individual economic constituents in the pandemic context, which was issued in May.

Agencies, organizations, and people must strictly follow the regulations of wearing face masks and using hand sanitizer in public places, especially at schools and hospitals.

The municipal People’s Committee requested that patient 1,342, a Vietnam Airlines flight attendant who spread the disease to his friend that later became patient 1,347, be strictly handled for violating the COVID-19 prevention and control regulations.

The city’s authorities also asked competent agencies to study regulations and appropriate punishments for people who spread dangerous infectious diseases to the community, Luong said.

The Ho Chi Minh City Center for Disease Control has tested a total of 737 samples since Tuesday afternoon, of which 37 samples were from people in direct contact with patient 1,342, and 372 from those in close contact with patient 1,347.

All of those 737 samples returned negative for the novel coronavirus.

Vietnam’s COVID-19 tally stood at 1,351 as of 4:30 pm on Wednesday, with 1,195 recoveries and 35 deaths, according to the Ministry of Health.

The Southeast Asian country had gone 88 days without an infection in the community before patient 1,347 was announced on Monday.
