The 39 people who were found dead in the back of a refrigerated truck after being smuggled into Britain last month all came from Vietnam and have been formally identified.

Vietnam's Ministry of Public Security also confirmed Thursday that all 39 were from the country, noting they hailed from six provinces.

Police initially said the victims were Chinese nationals, however that identification was called into question after families in Vietnam reported missing family members to authorities and local press.

The victims included eight women and 31 men.

"On behalf of the government, I would like to send my deepest condolences to the grandparents, parents, spouses, siblings, children and grandchildren of the victims who died in the faraway U.K. This is not only a painful incident for the families of the deceased, but also for the whole community, for each Vietnamese and every citizen of the world", he said.

Essex police said the families of the victims have been notified.

Beasley-Murray said that the identification of the victims was a very important step in the investigation since it enabled the United Kingdom police to work with Vietnamese colleagues to support the families of the victims.

Credico, who's also a comedian and voice actor, admitted that he has struggled with alcoholism over the past three decades. Stone in various texts urged Credico to plead the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination or not talk to investigators.

Police said Thursday the victims have been identified as Vietnamese nationals.

Police said the truck and the container entered the country at two separate times.

'Our thoughts remain with the families and friends of those whose tragic journey ended on our shores'.

In Ireland, a 22-year-old man was arrested on a British warrant.

Vietnam police have arrested 11 people suspected to be involved in the smuggling of the victims.

Harrison, of Newry in County Down, Northern Ireland, appeared at Dublin high court on Friday charged with 39 counts of manslaughter, along with human trafficking and immigration offences, and was remanded in custody.

The Vietnamese government strongly condemns acts of trafficking and calls on countries in the region and the world to step up cooperation, and resolutely prevent and combat this particularly unsafe crime so as not to repeat the same tragedies, and complete investigations soon and bring the criminals to justice.
