Vietnamese Trafficked into China for Prostitution

December 24, 2005

Over the last few years criminals in the border areas in Guangxi have adopted many methods to traffic Vietnamese women into China. In 2005, China and Vietnam launched a joint campaign over two months, and over 100 Vietnamese women were rescued and repatriated. One of them was a 19 year old girl called Ruan Shihua. In June 2005 she went to Dongxing city in Guangxi for a relative's wedding. Afterwards, five men who were pretending to be police came to the house to check documents, and as she did not enter China legally and did not have any identification, she was taken away. In the course of investigating a prostitution case, the police not only successfully rescued Ruan and apprehended two suspects (one Vietnamese and one Chinese), but also rescued another 10 Vietnamese women trafficked into China for prostitution.
