Victims of Vietnamese women trafficking gang return from Malaysia
July 12, 2006
Two Vietnamese girls sold by a people trafficking gang to brothels in Malaysia returned home Saturday, the Ministry of Public Security reported.
The two, aged 19, are from the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang and were lured into traveling to Malaysia to get married but ended up in brothels instead.
They had to serve five to six customers a day and were ill-treated by the pimps.
Before being repatriated the two were in Malaysian police custody for four months following a crackdown on the sex trade and illegal immigration.
Vietnamese police recently sent investigators to Malaysia to collect evidence against an international human trafficking gang busted last month in Ho Chi Minh City.
