2008년 3월 13일 오후

Tran Thanh Lan’s mother, Huan Kim An, received the diary when she visited the police station in Korea. On the same day, the diary was sent by fax to Park Kyong Ju. At the time, Salad TV (former Migrant Workers Broadcasting Station), an Internet media company operated by Park Kyong Ju, Vietnamese editor Bhu Thi Tuan completed the preliminary translation. The diary written in handwriting was difficult to translate due to some typos. Park Kyong Ju wrote and reported a special article about this death and diary.

쩐탄란의 모친 후안 김 안이 한국을 방문하여 시민단체와 함께 경찰서를 방문했을 때 유품으로 일기를 전달받음. 당일 쩐탄란 사망사건 진상규명대책위의 의뢰로 박경주가 팩스로 일기를 수신함. 당시 박경주가 운영했던 인터넷언론사 샐러드TV(구 이주노동자방송국) 베트남어 편집인 부티투안이 초벌 번역을 완료함. 손글씨로 적은 일기는 일부 오타로 인해 번역이 어려웠다. 박경주는 이 사망사건과 일기에 관한 기획 기사를 작성하여 보도했다.
