Unter den Toten im Sattelschlepper sind auch Vietnamesen

By Ninian Carter

October 23, 2019 - Einige Vietnamesen sollen unter den 39 Toten im Kühl-LKW sein, der auf einem Industriegebiet in der Nähe von London abgestellt war. Der Fahrer, er stammt aus Nordirland, wird voraussichtlich wegen fahrlässiger Tötung angeklagt.

Essex Police reported that they were called to Waterglade Industrial Park in Eastern Avenue shortly before 1.40 am on Wednesday, October 23 by the East of England Ambulance Service following reports that 39 people had been found dead in a refrigerated trailer.

The tractor unit of the lorry entered Britain via Holyhead on Sunday, October 20, having travelled over from Dublin. The lorry then collected the trailer, which had travelled from Zeebrugge, at the port of Purfleet at around 12:30 am on October 23. The cab and trailer left the port shortly after 1.05 am.

The deceased included 31 men and eight women. Police initially thought they were Chinese nationals but many are now thought to be Vietnamese. The lorry driver, a 25-year-old from Northern Ireland, was arrested and subsequently charged with manslaughter.
