Gangland duo lands in jail for making fake drugs

Two men belonging to a gang making fake drugs in Ho Chi Minh City received jail terms of five and seven years last Thursday.

Tran Hai Trung, 30, and Chau Van Linh, 35, belonged to the gang led by Mai Cong Nghe, who remains on the run from the police.

The city police raided Trung’s place on November 10, 2007, and found a large number of fake medicines, including antibiotics and some new drugs carrying the names of major pharmaceutical companies, equipment, and the materials to make the drugs.
