China brides: Four women back home after ordeal

Twelve Cambodian women cheated by marriage brokers who sent them to China have been rescued by the Cambodian and Chinese authorities, officials confirmed to the Post yesterday.

As of yesterday, four of the 12 had already been repatriated, while the rest are still waiting in China.

“The Cambodian consulate issued legal documents for them to come back home and cooperated with Chinese authorities to provide them a visa,” said Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Koy Kuong.

Kuong appealed to Cambodian women to be wary of brokers who lure them to China with promises of well-compensated jobs or marriages.

Sum Van, 43, the mother of one of the women, said her daughter had married in search of a better life.

“I agreed with her marriage in China because she wanted to live there and we hoped she could get a new, happy family, but she was mistreated by her husband and his family,” she said.
