(VOV) - Polices and border guards in southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau province broke an illegal border-crossing scheme on June 25.
Nguyen Van Kinh (46) and Nguyen Duc Loi (52) were caught in an attempt to bring 25 people to Australia on a fishing boat BT 93700TS.
Kinh admitted that he and other man named Tuong had arranged for those who wanted to travel to Australia at a cost of US$11,000-14,000 each.
After collecting money from these people, they bought a fishing boat and hired Loi to sail to Australia. However, the boat was seized just after leaving the port.
