Man charged over lorry deaths of 39 Vietnamese nationals in Essex

A man has been charged with manslaughter and being part of the conspiracy that led to the deaths of 39 Vietnamese nationals found in a lorry in Essex.

The victims’ bodies were discovered in the back of the lorry trailer, which had been transported by ferry from Zeebrugge in Belgium to Purfleet early on 23 October 2019.

Marius Mihai Dragici, 49, who was arrested in August by police in Romania, will appear at Chelmsford magistrates court on Saturday accused of being involved in the incident.

Dragici is suspected to have been part of the network that coordinated illegal journeys to the UK.

He faces 39 counts of manslaughter and conspiracy to assist unlawful immigration.
