Chinese Police Detain Two Suspects over Trafficking Vietnamese Babies

December 17, 2007

Chinese police have detained a Vietnamese woman and a Chinese man who allegedly smuggled four babies from Vietnam into China.

The woman was caught holding two babies in arms on the China-Vietnam border in Dongxing City of southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Tuesday night, when she illegally entered Chinese territory across a river. The woman seemed not to be the mother judging from her appearance, a spokesman with the Dongxing police said.

Police questioned the 53-year-old woman surnamed Pham from Mong Cai City of northeast Vietnam's Quang Ninh Province, and she confessed that she had planned to sell the two babies aged below two months to a man surnamed Ruan from south China's Guangdong Province, the spokesman said.

Pham also confessed that she has smuggled four babies on three separate occasions into China this month. Ruan was later captured in a makeshift shed in Dongxing, which neighbors Mong Cai.

The two babies are now being attended by the Dongxing Municipal Obstetric and Gynaecology Hospital, the spokesman said. The case is being further investigated, he added.
