A court in the central province of Binh Thuan handed down sentences to two Chinese men and two Vietnamese men for gambling on Thursday.

Luo Zhi Yong, 47, and Liang Tuan De, 48, along with Nguyen Van Hung, 48, were sentenced to three months in jail each.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Van Toan, 34, received a three-month suspended sentence.

According to the indictment, on July 12 this year Yong and De came to Phan Van Hien's house in Phan Thiet to buy fish .

After that, the two Chinese men gambled on card games with Hien and Tran Van Tien, prosecutors said, adding that after a while the two Vietnamese men left for work, at which point Hung with Toan replaced them.


Later that same day police raided the card game and confiscated over VND9.5 million (US$451).

A report on Vietnamnet quoted the Binh Thuan's People's Court as saying that Hien and Tien were not charged and only fined because they only joined half of the gambling and their bets could not be identified.
