She made the statement during the ministry’s regular press conference in Hanoi on March 5th in reply to reporters’ question about Vietnam’s stance on the recent bust of a Vietnamese migrant smuggling ring in Germany.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Germany reported on March 3rd that the police raided 32 sites in Berlin and the states of Hessen, Sachsen, Niedersachsen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Baden-Württemberg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

The investigation was launched by Berlin prosecution agency, German and European police after the German police found a lorry carrying illegal Vietnamese immigrants on the border with the Czech Republic in December 2018. The German police have arrested six suspects and detained about 30 others to verify their identity and residence status, and collected some evidence.

Upon hearing the news, the Vietnamese Embassy in Berlin contacted German police to acquire information about Vietnamese arrestees, and soon arrange a consular visit to them. The German side has received the request and will offer suitable response, she said./.
