‘China brides’ rescued from Phnom Penh guesthouse

Police rescued six would-be Chinese brides from a guesthouse in the capital’s Prampi Makara district and arrested their alleged trafficker on Tuesday. All seven are Cambodian nationals; two of the victims are underage.

The suspect, Toeun Buthea, 24, planned to bring the women through Vietnam and into China, according to a report filed by the Phnom Penh Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection unit, which made the rescue and arrest.

A group from the unit was in the midst of a crack-down when they found the broker and the women in the Dara guesthouse in Veal Vong commune.

Police educated the victims about the risks of travel to China, then sent them to their families.
