The colonel said that as Vietnam is carrying its open policy for international integration, it cannot be immune from transnational criminals. Not only in Vietnam, a developing country, but also in developed countries, transnational criminals often take advantage of security loopholes to carry out their crimes.
Foreign criminals often arrive in Vietnam as visitors or tourists to commit crimes or evade police hunts. Meanwhile, the number of Vietnamese criminals manage to flee abroad is not small either.
According to Khang, transnational criminals often enter Vietnam include drug traffickers who bring drugs from other countries to Vietnam; human trafficking criminals who are members of illegal immigration organizations; thieves and swindlers, including those who use fake credit cards to withdraw money from banks or ATMs; and criminals using high technologies.
