All ten crew members from the fishing boat PY 90260 TS which was seized by Brunei authorities on May 21 were in good health, according to the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).

The MoFA sent a diplomatic note to the Embassy of Brunei in Vietnam and instructed officials at the Vietnamese Embassy in Brunei to work with relevant agencies in the country to verify the information and learn all the facts of the situation. The Ministry has asked Brunei to quickly release the boat owned by Do Van Phung and its crew.

Vietnamese embassy officials in Brunei have visited the fishermen and will continue to monitor the situation and provide support to protect the fishermen's legitimate rights and interests. /.
