They have assigned staff to monitor and transport goods across the border at night., and hired border residents to transport goods. When the smugglers were detected by the enforcement forces, they had left the goods and escaped.

Working with the competent authorities, Vi Thi Hue (the driver), 38, residing in Lang Ha village said that that she took the fireworks at the warehouse of Mrs Tran Thi Da (her mother).

Inspecting the warehouse, the working team discovered 713 more rectangular boxes suspected to be fireworks weighting of more than 1 ton.

On the evening of October 18, at Highway 1A in Mai Pha commune, Lang Son city, the working group of Unit 4 and Lang Son City Police inspected the tractor with the license plate 12H - 015.99 and a semi-trailer with the license plate 12R - 014.29 driven by Luong Ngoc Tung, 39, residing in Yen The district, Bac Giang province with suspicious signs.

The working team seized 458 Chinese-made firecracker boxes, weighting 667.5 kg and 980 artillery pieces (grenade artillery) total weight 47.5 kg. Luong Ngoc Tung admitted that he bought the above fireworks in China and transport them to Bac Giang for consumption.

Inspecting targeting arears

Mr. Doan Thanh Son, Vice Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee, Head of Steering Committee 389 of Lang Son province, said that before, during and after the Lunar New Year, the smuggling, trade fraud and counterfeit goods will see complicated factors. Therefore, Steering Committee 389 of Lang Son province requires the enforcement forces to take drastic measures to prevent the trade of banned goods, low-quality goods and goods infringing intellectual property right in the market.

The Committee asked the Customs force to strengthen information collection, inspection and control in the customs control, especially focusing on strictly controlling import and export goods across border gates.
