A Vietnamese man has been sentenced to one year in prison for organizing a South Korean man's illegal entry into Cambodia from Long An Province, located in Vietnam's Mekong Delta region.
The People's Court of Long An Province on Monday handed down the sentence on Nguyen Van Luy, a 33-year-old man dwelling in An Thanh Commune in Ben Cau District, situated in southern Tay Ninh Province.
According to the indictment, Luy worked as a 'xe om' (motorbike taxi) driver at the Moc Bai border gate in Tay Ninh, where he got to know a South Korean man named Kim.
On August 6, 2020, Kim texted Luy to ask the Vietnamese man to help his South Korean brother cross the border into Cambodia.
After accepting the job for US$1,000, Luy asked an unknown person, who worked as a motorbike taxi driver in the area of Tho Mo Market in My Quy Tay Commune in Long An's Duc Hue District, to transport the South Korean man to Cambodia for a wage of VND10 million ($434).
On August 7, 2020, Luy booked a car to pick up the South Korean man at a hotel on Hau Giang Street in Tan Binh District, Ho Chi Minh City and take him to Tho Mo Market.
From Tho Mo Market, Luy brought the South Korean man to the border area in Hamlet 1 in My Quy Tay Commune at 8:30 pm on the same day and was arrested by My Quy Tay Border Station's patrol team.
