Man charged with immigration

A man has been accused of a movement offense over the passings of 39 Vietnamese transients whose bodies were found in a lorry in Essex.

The 31 men and eight ladies were found in a refrigerated trailer in Grays on 23 October.

Alexandru-Ovidiu Hanga, 27, of Hobart Road, Tilbury, submitted the supposed offense between May 2018 and October 2019.

He is expected at Basildon Magistrates’ Court later.

A month ago, a fundamental reason for death was given as a mix of suffocation and overheating in an encased space.

A few people have been captured regarding the passings and a supposed people-dealing ring, including the lorry driver Maurice Robinson, of Craigavon, County Armagh.

At the Old Bailey in November, he conceded plotting to help unlawful migration and getting criminal property.

Three other men have additionally been charged corresponding to the passings.

A month ago seven individuals were captured and charged in Vietnam for “arranging or broking others to escape abroad or remain abroad illicitly”.
