According to Essex police, they will be in the country until the end of February and are working closely with the British Embassy and National Crime Agency (NCA) international liaison staff in Hanoi, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, who have assisted with the arrangements for this trip.
Specialist officers from the NCA and officers from the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security will be joining the Essex Police team on the visits.
On Tuesday [February 11], Essex police revealed a preliminary cause of death had been given as a combination of suffocation and overheating in an enclosed space.
The victims, including eight women, came mostly from the central provinces of Nghe An and Ha Tinh.
