Authorities in the southern province of Tay Ninh near Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday fined a Chinese man VND20 million (US$941) for attempting to pick a Vietnamese bride via illegal brokering services, Vietnam News Agency reported.
Wei Ji Jun, a 28-year-old farmer from China’s Jilin Province, allegedly came to Tay Ninh to see some Vietnamese women in a meeting organized by Vietnamese and Chinese marriage brokers.
On September 20, local police caught three women in the meeting when they were waiting for Jun to select one of them.
The police arrested two Vietnamese brokers named Pham Thi Thu Linh and Luu Vi Tan and a Chinese named Zhao Li Qan.
They are investigating further.
