The accused, Nguyen Minh Cam, 55, from Thanh Chuong District, Nghe An Province, was detained on Monday on charges of organising other people to go abroad illegally, under Article 349 of Penal Code, said Colonel Nguyen Tien Nam, deputy director of Ha Tinh Police Department.
On the afternoon of the same day, police also searched Cam’s house in Tran Phu Ward, Ha Tinh City, in Ha Tinh Province.

The case is under further investigation.
