Criminal investigation police of Ha Tay province said that with the help of the public they found out and broke a women trafficking ring from two communes of Ba Vi and Khanh Thuong to China since April 2004 up to now.
The traffickers have brought five young girls from Ba Vi to China two of whom Dinh Thi Lan Thuong and Trieu Thi Mai were sent back to Vietnam by Chinese functional agencies. There is no trace of the other three. At the moment, the local police are coordinating with Chinese police in order to find and bring them back to Vietnam.
Girls declared that one man named Viet and some other men told them to go to other provinces like Bac Ninh and Lang Son to work for some restaurants with high payment.
