Chinese man prosecuted for using fake personal papers

The Hanoi People’s Procuracy has completed an indictment to prosecute Li Ye Sheng, 50, a Chinese native for “forging documents of agencies, organisations” in line with Point c, Clause 2, Article 341 of the Penal Code 2015.

According to the indictment, when the Hanoi police conducted administrative inspections at House No.23, Alley 223, Dai Mo street in Dai Mo ward at 10:30pm on December 11, 2020, they found that Li failed to follow immigration procedures in line with regulations.

He presented an identity card and a driver’s license named Le Nghiep Sinh, 50, residing in An Sinh commune, Dong Trieu district, Quang Ninh province. He spoke Vietnamese fluently and said he is a Vietnamese.

Suspecting that his personal papers are fake, the police took him to their station where he admitted that he is a Chinese named Li Ye Sheng and entered Vietnam illegally in February 2020.

While working for Huong Linh company in May 2020, he bought the above fake personal papers at a cost of VND11.5 million (US$500) from an unknown man on the social media, with an aim to stay and work for a long term in Vietnam. He himself knew that his action is a violation of the Vietnamese law.

During his stay in the rented house, he did not report to local authorities. Nobody knew he is a Chinese, including his landlord and colleagues.
