Four Vietnam Airlines cabin crew caught smuggling eleven.4 kg of hard medicine on flight from Paris

Four Vietnam Airlines flight attendants caught smuggling medicine disguised as toothpaste on a flight from Paris earlier this month were launched on bail yesterday, reports VnExpress.
On March 16, police arrested four flight attendants – Nguyen Thanh Thuy, Vo Tu Quynh, Tran Thi Thu Ngan and Dang Phuong Van – after 11.four kilogrammes of cocaine and ketamine have been found in their hand baggage upon arriving at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chih Minh City.
Light claimed that they didn’t know that 157 of the 327 toothpaste tubes – weighing 60 kilogrammes – contained medication. The flight attendants advised officers that they were paid ten million dong (US$425) by someone in France to move the toothpaste, on the request of one other Vietnam Airlines worker.
The four flight attendants told police that they checked for indicators of tampering previous to taking the toothpaste on board but didn’t find any. All four denied figuring out they were carrying medicine of their hand luggage.
Amazingly, authorities have said, “there is not enough evidence for a criminal charge.”
The Thaiger wonders, if it were a passenger who was caught carrying 11.4 kilogrammes of exhausting medicine on a global flight, would the excuse “someone paid me to take the package” get them off the hook?
Especially in Vietnam, where serious cases of worldwide drug smuggling are punishable by the death penalty. For instance, a Vietnamese man who picked up 30 kilogrammes of medication on the Vietnam aspect of the Laos border and was caught carrying them across the nation in November was sentenced to demise..
