Pham Truong An, 30, is accused of leading a ring trafficking Vietnamese women to China
Police in the Mekong Delta province of Tay Ninh have arrested six people, including one Chinese national, for allegedly selling local women into marriage with Chinese men.
According to police, they caught three Vietnamese people and one Chinese man completing check-in procedures for three women at Tan Son Nhat International Airport on Wednesday.
Earlier that same day, police arrested two other members of the ring and confiscated eight passports, five air tickets and tens of millions dong.
Initial information is that after getting married and immigrating to China, one of the arrestees, Pham Truong An, 30, and her husband contacted Chinese men who wanted to marry Vietnamese women.
They offered to provide the woman for VND90-120 million (US$4,200-5,600) each.
An returned to Vietnam and collaborated with Nguyen Van Quan, 30, and Nguyen Hoang Son, 21, to find women that wanted to marry foreigners.
They paid the women’s family VND20-30 million ($942-1,400) each and were in charge of completing immigration procedures for them.
Quan and Son were paid VND2-20 million for each successful case.
The ring had sold three women before being busted, police said.
Police are investigating the case and collaborating with related agencies to rescue the victims.
