More China brides aided

Two more Cambodian women who were trafficked to China as brides are being assisted by officials at the Kingdom’s embassy in Beijing and will soon be repatriated, the government said yesterday.

In a statement, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Koy Kuong said the two women from Kampong Cham province had been trafficked to Zhejiang province in China to marry men there. Embassy staff members are helping both with the divorce and repatriation process.

Chinese officials have insisted the women resolve matters at the Cambodian consulate in Shanghai, the statement said. The two will likely finish filing legal documents there.

Rights group Adhoc said last week that at least 15 Cambodian women in China were waiting to be repatriated.
