21 May 2020 :
A Hanoi court sentenced two men to death and a woman to life in prison on 20 May 2020 for drug trafficking.
Nguyen Van Thanh, 38, Nguyen Huu Huy, 45, and Nguyen Thi Tham, 36, who escaped death because she has a young child, were arrested in May last year.
The police found that Thanh had given Tham and Huy a bag containing two kilograms of drugs at a café in Hoang Mai District. They found another six kilograms in the three people’s houses and Thanh’s car.
Thanh said Tham and Huy had offered to buy drugs from him, and since March last year their transactions added up to 11.4 kg of drugs, the Hanoi People’s Court heard.
