TAY NINH — Police in this southeastern province have detained a couple suspected of running a human trafficking ring from Viet Nam through China.
The couple, Dinh Tien Vu, 33, and Huynh Thi Ngoc Quyeên, 30, along with a man and a woman, Pham Nguyen Minh Quang, 33, and Ho Cam Tu, 24, all from Chau Thanh District, were nabbed on Sunday after police received a report from local people who accused them of trafficking Vietnamese girls to China.
One of the accusers, a man from the same district, said on condition of anonymity that these four people had seduced and sold his daughter to someone in China to be wife to a group of Chinese men.
Police cracked the case, rescued the daughter and brought her back to Viet Nam. They also immediately detained the four accused.
Tu, one of the four suspected traffickers, said she married a Chinese man a year ago and then the couple started to introduce Vietnamese girls to Chinese men and asking for a sum of money to the tune of VND200 million (roughly US$9,500) if the girl was accepted by a Chinese man.
Tu and her husband worked hand in glove with Vu and Quyen who would search for Vietnamese girls in Viet Nam. They paid them about VND120 million for organizing and completing all procedures to illegally transfer girls to China.
Police discovered that the ring had successfully trafficked more than 10 women to China, of whom three were rescued while checking in at the border gate. — VNS
