HCMC – Vietnamese and British authorities on Friday released the names of the 39 people whose bodies were found in a refrigerated container shipped from Zeebrugge in Belgium to Essex in the UK.

The Essex Police said in a statement issued on Friday on their website: “Formal identification has been established via an Identification Commission, overseen by Her Majesty’s Senior Coroner for Essex, Mrs Caroline Beasley-Murray.”

The senior officer in overall charge of the enquiry Assistant Chief Constable Tim Smith said: “This was an incredibly important process and our team has been working hard to bring answers to worried families who fear their loved one may be among those whose tragic journey ended on our shores.

“Our priority has been to identify the victims, to preserve the dignity of those who have died and to support the victims’ friends and families.”

The statement said the Vietnamese and UK governments are still working on the repatriation of those who have died.

For identification, the statement noted, there were a series of processes “which include but are not limited to fingerprints, DNA, medical or dentistry documentation and distinctive markings such as tattoos and scars.”

The statement added, “The Government, the National Crime Agency, foreign police forces and Essex Police have worked with HM Senior Coroner to make sure that every detail has been verified in order to maintain the dignity of those who have died and to show respect for their families and friends.”

Speaking at the ongoing session of the National Assembly in Hanoi on Friday afternoon, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc expressed his condolences to the families of the deceased. “We should not let such a tragedy happen again.”
