Suspected China bride broker busted by cops

A suspected bride broker was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly tricking three Cambodian women into marrying men in China, according to a report filed by Phnom Penh police.

Pov Chenda, 38, allegedly promised the women, who were from Kratie province, that they would make 2,000 to 3,000 yuan (about $312-$468) a month working in China.

However, upon their arrival, the women were sent to be married to local Chinese men.

“Those brides were mistreated by their husbands.

One of them saved up and is back [in Cambodia] already, while two women are still in China awaiting rescue,” the report said.

Repatriations of brides from China have been common in recent months.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly warned of traffickers luring Cambodian women to China with offers of higher-paying jobs, only for them to eventually find themselves living as brides in a foreign country.
