Hanoi police to file charges against 2 for carrying fake money

Police in Hanoi’s Cau Giay District said October 4 they would file charges against Giang A Tu, 28, and Giang A Thai, 22, whom they had caught carrying counterfeit money a few days earlier.

The two, from Moc Chau in Son La Province, admitted to transporting VND342 million (US$19,000) in dong bills to Hanoi for a person in Son La but said they did not know his name.

They knew the bills were fake but still agreed to carry it because they were paid a lot of money, they said.

The police caught them on September 29 when they arrived at My Dinh Bus Station in the capital but did not say what denominations of notes they were carrying.
