Trafficked girls

The three youngest of 14 trafficked Vietnamese girls, arrested June 20 for illegal immigration, have been released pending trial. Human rights groups were outraged when the girls, who were rescued from a brothel May 23 and moved to a local NGO for protection, were arrested June 20. The manager of the NGO said it wanted the court to charge those responsible for trafficking the girls as sex slaves. "If the court tries the case about illegal immigrants first, they may deport the victims and we will lose them as witnesses," he said. The brothel owner, who was arrested during the May raid, has escaped.
