A Vietnamese man described by the authorities in Europe as a major people smuggler is behind bars after he was arrested in the United Kingdom.

Khanh Chan, 39, also known by the name of Khanh Ngoc Nguyen, was part of an international trafficking network, actively smuggling people from Vietnam to Europe between 2015 and 2017.

In September last year, Khanh was jailed for eight years in his absence by a court in Paris after he was convicted of people smuggling.

He was initially thought to be hiding in London, but investigators from the National Crime Agency (NCA) working with the French authorities tracked him down to an address in Bexhill-on-Sea on the south coast of England.
