Woman held for trafficking women to China - TuoiTreNews


Police in Hanoi have arrested a 32-year-old woman for smuggling women to China by lying to them that she would arrange jobs for them there.

Phan Thi Thu Thuy, a resident of Ward 4, District 10, Ho Chi Minh City, was seized on Wednesday at a hotel room in Hanoi when she was preparing to send 9 women to China, police in Hoang Mai District reported.

Thuy would be prosecuted on charges of women trafficking, police said.

Thuy told investigators that she had lied to her victims that she would give them secure jobs at a salary of VND2.8 million (US$134) per month in China while in fact would sell them when they arrived in the country.
If she had not arrested, she would have taken the nine women to Mong Cai Town in northern Quang Ninh Province before selling them to China, Thuy told police.
Thuy said she was once sold to China by a human trafficking gang several years ago but she managed to return to Vietnam 2 years ago.  

She confessed that in December 2011 she successfully cheated and sold 4 women to China for money.

After investigating her previous record, the police have found that Quang Ninh Province Police Department has issued a nationwide warrant for the arrest of Thuy for the same offense.

The police in Hanoi and Quang Ninh are expanding their investigation to search for the four victims.
