The Investigation Security Agency and Ministry of Public Security have just completed the investigation of a network sending people illegally to Australia with very sophisticated tricks.

The ring leaders, Tran Thi Le Oanh, 41, Director of the Ocean Travel and Overseas Study Consulting Co., Ltd, headquartered in Phu Nhuan district, HCM City, and Nguyen Thi My Phuong, 30, from Tan Binh district, are facing charges of organizing illegal immigration services and using fake papers of agencies or organizations.

The remaining three members in this ring – Vu Hong Tien, 41, Nguyen Van Tien, 30 and Le Van Dai, 33, all from Tan Binh district – face charges of “forging the seal, documents of agencies and organizations”.

According to investigators, the ring made fake papers to bypass the Australian Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City. By using these fake papers, the ring got travel and study visas to Australia for 28 people.

However, 20 people left Vietnam to Australia through Tan Son Nhat international Airport and 8 people have not left the country yet. When the visa expired, 10 people exited Australia and returned to Vietnam and the remaining 10 are illegally residing in this country.

Oanh, as the Director of the Oceania Travel and Overseas Studying Consulting Co., Ltd., used fake papers to apply for visas to enter Australia for these people.

My Phuong provided Oanh with many types of fake documents such as: transaction statements of banks; certificate of temporary residence of the police of ward 10, district 10 and of the police of Binh Tri Dong ward, Binh Tan district; and copies of ID cards, household registration books of several communes and wards in Ho Chi Minh City.

Phuong hired Le Van Dai to forge bank account transaction statements, with the price of VND2 million/sheet. Dai received information from Phuong to make fake papers as required, then asked Nguyen Van Tien to make fake seals to authenticate those documents.

Investigation agency determined that Tien alone made hundreds of fake seals at an apartment in Binh Tan district. The police searched the houses of Le Van Dai and Nguyen Van Tien, seizing 234 fake seals of all kinds.

Oanh also hired Vu Hong Tien to make fake papers and documents. Tien bought 89 fake seals of businesses, universities, colleges, vocational training centers, hospitals … to authenticate fake papers.

Oanh and Phuong posted ads on social networking sites to find “customers”. They collected service fees ranging from tens to hundreds of million dong per case.

In another case, the Investigation Security Agency, Ho Chi Minh City Police is expanding investigation of another ring that illegal sending Vietnamese people to the US. The investigation was launched after the US authorities detected two Vietnamese illegally entering this country and deported them to Vietnam.

A South Korean man has confessed to murdering and dismembering a compatriot in a rented house in Saigon over some money-related conflict, police said.

Jeong In Cheol, 35, director of the Creata Vietnam Company, which is based in District 7 and specializes in providing marketing solutions for South Korean products, has confessed to killing his 33-year-old compatriot An Tong Duk.

The murder was discovered Friday night by the landlord of a four-story house in District 7’s Him Lam residential area that Cheol had rented a few months ago as his company’s office.

The landlord had come to check his property after Cheol abruptly announced he would stop renting the house.

Inside a toilet, the landlord found a blood stained pink suitcase and next to it, a saw and locking pliers. Inside the suitcase was a black plastic bag containing body parts.

Police also found three other nylon bags with body parts on the third floor of the house.

“This is an especially serious murder,” said major general Dinh Thanh Nhan, deputy director of HCMC Police, who directed investigations at the crime scene.

Camera footage from round the area showed Cheol driving a black car with Duk to the company’s office and leaving it without him.

Within 12 hours of discovering the murder, police arrested Cheol Saturday afternoon. He was hiding in an apartment in the Masteri Thao Dien complex in District 2, around five kilometers from the murder scene.

With an investigation ongoing, more details about the murder were not released.

Nearly 11,000 South Koreans live in District 7, mainly in the Phu My Hung area. According to the HCMC Vietnam – Korea Friendship Association, nearly 90,000 South Koreans reside in the southern city now.

Two Vietnamese returning from Russia and Japan were confirmed infected with the novel coronavirus Saturday evening, taking the national active case count to 124.

“Patient 1340” is a 23-year-old man from the central province of Thanh Hoa. On November 13, he returned from Japan and landed at Cam Ranh Airport in Khanh Hoa Province on Vietjet Air flight VJ8650.

He was sent to a centralized quarantine facility in Khanh Hoa on entry and his second test result on Friday showed he was positive for the virus. The patient is being treated at Khanh Hoa Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

“Patient 1341” is a 20-year-old woman from Hanoi. She landed at Cam Ranh Airport on Bamboo Airways flight QH9195 from Russia on November 24 and was quarantined upon arrival.

Her first test result on Friday came back positive and she is receiving treatment at the same hospital as “Patient 1340”.

Earlier, four people boarding the same Bamboo Airways flight and being quarantined in Khanh Hoa upon arrival were confirmed positive for the coronavirus.

Vietnam now has 1,341 Covid-19 cases. Saturday also saw nine patients declared free of Covid-19, raising total recoveries to 1,179.

The country of 96 million people has recorded 35 deaths so far. Three others died after they had been confirmed Covid-19 free, and thus were not counted in either the recoveries or the deaths.

Vietnam has gone 86 days without community transmissions while the pandemic situation in many European countries and the U.S. have turned complicated.

The Covid-19 pandemic has hit 218 countries and territories, with more than 1.4 million deaths reported.
