QUANG NAM (VNS) — Central Quang Nam Province's People's Court on Wednesday sentenced Nguyen Sa Ry, 56, to 20 years in prison for trafficking a woman and three girls across the border to China.
The indictment said that Ry enticed the woman and girls, all belonging to the Khmer ethnic minority community, to go with him to HCM City, promising them jobs.
The four were then handed over to a woman and taken to the Mong Cai border gate in northern Quang Ninh Province, from where they would be smuggled across the border to China and forced to work as prostitutes.
Ry was caught by locals in the central province of Quang Nam as he was taking the woman and the girls to Quang Ninh.
He confessed to the police that he had previously trafficked three women to China, for which he was paid VND9 million (US$141) in total. — VNS
