Viet officials to be
tried for smuggling
Live in a Language House
SAIGON (Reuter) - South
Vietnam yesterday broke a pro-
longed silence over a smuggling
case involving senior army, po-
lice and government officials
with a statement saying at least
51 officers and civilians would be
tried on charges of sabotaging
the national economy.
T Assistant Defense Minister Ton
That Chuoc told a news confer-
ence that President Nguyen Van
Thieu had dismissed or demoted
40 army and police officers in-
volved. The charge carries a
maximum penalty of death.
IN THE FIRST official state-
ment since a local press report-
ed the case in February, Chuoc
said a convoy of six military
trucks escorted by a military po-
lice jeep went through check
points in the Mekong Delta one
night in January before being
stopped at a road block near Ben
Waiting at the road block was
a battalion of government mili-
tiamen who had been warned
that the trucks might be carry-
ing disguised Viet Cong.
A search turned up 238 cases of
contraband cigarettes and 382
cases of cognac, packed in Singa-
pore and worth about 45 million
piastres, or $75,000.
CHUOC DENIED local press
reports that a number of army
generals or their wives were in-
volved. But he said the ring-
leaders, five men and one wom-
an, were still at large.
Those named by Chuoc yester-
day were 40 officers, including
two lieutenant-colonels and six
majors, who would be tried with-
in a month by a military court.
Also named were 11 civilians.

Koreans offer U.S.
new peace settlement
I l ?
The U.S. government reacted cooly yesterday to a- call by
North Korea for negotiations between the two countries on a peace
agreement to replace the 20-year old military armistice in Korea.
The State Department, in a statement, emphasized the U.S. view
that the Korean problem must be resolved directly between North and
U.S. officials said they believed North Korea wanted to exclude
South Korea from the negotiations and indicated this was unacceptable
to the United States.
THE NORTH KOREAN news agency reported that the request
was made in a letter to the U.S. Congress by the fifth Supreme
People's Assembly in Pyongyang after a proposal by Foreign Minister
The letter said the military armistice signed July 27, 1953, has
become outdated and "cannot guarantee a durable peace."
Meanwhile, the South Korean government responded to the North'
Korean proposal by claiming that it was designed to weaken the South
Korean defense posture for an eventual Communist takeover.
