Waitress charged with trafficking two women

A 23-year-old was charged yesterday for human trafficking by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court after she allegedly tried to sell two women to a brothel in Thailand.

Chrea Linda, 23, a waitress and a neighbour of the two victims, manipulated the pair to travel with her to Koh Kong province, said Keo Thea, chief of Phnom Penh’s anti-human trafficking bureau.

Upon arrival, a second female suspect friendly with Linda offered to take the two girls across the border for a jaunt to Thailand. Instead, they were promptly deposited at a brothel on the Thai side. Escaping within a day, they reached the border and alerted police, who quickly apprehended Linda.
