Quang Ninh’s border force explained to the Chinese fishermen that their action was a violation of Vietnamese sovereignty.

Su Gui Qin, 49, from Guangxi Province, who is the boat captain, admitted breaking the law and promised not to repeat his behaviour.

The held people were treated well and after signing a written record of the violation, they were set free to return to China.
