SOC TRANG (VNS) – Tran Thi Sa Phay, 31, of Lai Hoa Commune, Vinh Chau Town from southern Soc Trang province, was yesterday sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment for trafficking Vietnamese women into China.
The provincial People's Court also confiscated VND217 million (nearly US$10,200) from Phay, which was the money she illegally earned through human trafficking, and added it to the national budget.
For each woman sent to China, Phay was paid CNY20,000 (over $3,200) by a Chinese man named Su Zhisheng.
Phay has helped Zhisheng by sending 10 Vietnamese women to China.
Zhisheng, who allegedly began trafficking humans before meeting Phay, has not been captured and is being hunted by the police. — VNS
