Two from Nam in Hot Water
December 23, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — Two Vietnamese nationals, Nguyen Van Dinh and Nguyen Trieu Duc, both from Hanoi, have been arrested by officers of the Ministry of Public Security's Criminal Police Department on allegations of organizing gambling cruises between Vietnam and Cambodia.
According to the police, the ships arranged by the duo would set off from the northern province of Quang Ninh and travel along Vietnam's coast southward to reach Cambodia; then make a return voyage following the same route.
On each round-trip journey, a ship could carry between 50 and 60 gamblers.
The police said it was a new way of organizing illegal gambling that they are investigating in depth.
