Broker convicted over Malaysia trafficking

A woman will serve one year in prison after a Phnom Penh municipal judge yesterday convicted her of unlawful recruitment for exploitation.

Huy Sreynang, 41, was charged over an October incident where a Battambang woman accused her of promising her a garment factory job in Malaysia, but arrived in Phnom Penh only to be held against her will in Sreynang’s house for two days.

“She was arrested after the victim filed a complaint to our police office that she was illegally detained at the suspect’s house,” said Hor Sok, a penal police officer in Por Sen Chey district. Sreynang had also demanded the woman pay $250 for travel documents after she arrived, expecting to be flown to Malaysia. The victim escaped on October 24.
