A Vietnamese businesswoman was found dead in China this week, with authorities alleged that she had been a victim of a robbery.
The Vietnamese General Consulate in China's Guangdong Province said the victim was identified as Ha Thuy Linh, 45, director of Ha Linh Ltd. Co., a tea business based in Vietnam's Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.
According to the consulate, she was reportedly robbed and was in a coma when she was brought to a hospital in Guangdong. It did not clarify the date of the robbery.
She reportedly died on Tuesday morning.
According to the consulate, her body is still being kept at a local mortuary. Local police said they are working to establish the cause of her death.
Vietnam's foreign ministry has asked Chinese authorities to investigate Linh's death.
Linh reportedly came to China on September 19 for some business. Three days later, the Chinese consulate in Ho Chi Minh City informed her company of her death.
Linh established her company in 2008. The company is known as one of the largest Oolong tea exporter in Lam Dong.
