Senior General Le Quy Vuong, Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Public Security and Mr. Kim Chang Yong, Commander of the RoK NPA attended the event.
Speaking at the ceremony, the representative of the NPA stated that, since the establishment of the Vietnam - RoK Information Group in 2015, the two sides have closely cooperated in preventing and fighting against crimes. Particularly, they have teamed up in arresting international criminal fugitives and quickly handling criminal cases involving citizens of the two countries.
Over the past time, the Foreign Relations Department, the Criminal Police Department, and the Criminal Investigation Agency under the MPS have effectively supported the RoK police in arresting a number of Korean internationally-wanted criminals. Recently, the Vietnamese side assisted the NPA in successfully arresting Lee Chang Su, a dangerous Korean fugitive, when he was hiding in Vietnam.
At the ceremony, Commander Kim Chang Yong presented Letters of Appreciation from the NPA to units and individuals of the MPS who obtained outstanding achievements in the crime prevention cooperation between the two sides.
