'Lack of oxygen and overheating' killed 39 Vietnamese migrants in UK”

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter in connection with the deaths of 39 Vietnamese nationals found in a refrigerated lorry trailer in Essex.

The victims were found dead in a refrigeration trailer in the county of Essex, east of London, on 23 October previous year after having been transported by ferry from Belgium.

The bodies of 31 men and eight women - all from Vietnam - were found inside the truck container on October 23 at the Waterglade Industrial Park in Grays, a town about 25 miles east of London.

Essex police said provisional postmortem examinations indicated the victims died from a combination of lack of oxygen and overheating - hypoxia and hyperthermia - in the enclosed space.

Investigators also made more arrests in connection with the involuntary manslaughter investigation.

He remains in police custody in Essex, officers said.

Three days ago, a 22-year-old man was arrested in Northern Ireland on charges of manslaughter and aiding illegal immigration.

Staff from the National Crime Agency and officers from Vietnam's ministry of public security are assisting with the investigation.

He likewise deals with 39 costs of homicide and costs for conspiracy theory to traffic individuals and conspiracy theory to help illegal migration and will certainly show up in court once more tomorrow. Media reports in Vietnam say the bodies of 16 of the 39 Vietnamese who died when human traffickers carried them by truck to England in October past year have arrived in Vietnam and been transported by ambulances to their hometowns.

Meanwhile, Gheorghe Nica, 43, from Essex, was detained on a European Arrest Warrant at Frankfurt Airport on 29 January and has been charged with 39 counts of manslaughter.

Lorry driver Maurice "Mo" Robinson, 25, of Craigavon, Northern Ireland was previously with 39 counts of manslaughter and has admitted assisting unlawful immigration and acquiring criminal property. He is due at the Dublin High Court on Wednesday.

His co-accused, Christopher Kennedy, 23, from Darkley, County Armagh, denied conspiracy to commit human trafficking offences, assisting unlawful immigration and arranging to facilitate the travel of other people with a view to exploitation.

Police believe that trucks were used to illegally introduce people to the United Kingdom through the port.
