Court charges woman in trafficking case

Kandal provincial court charged a woman this week with attempting to illegally traffick a 21-year-old woman. Kim Sokun, police chief of the province’s Lvea Em district, said the suspect was arrested on March 3 after the victim’s parents filed a complaint with police. The suspect, a second-hand clothing vendor, was allegedly bringing the 21-year-old woman to Phnom Penh by ferry to traffick to a man. However, a neighbour of the victim was on the same ferry and returned her home. The suspect has told police that she was only taking the 21-year-old to Phnom Penh to sell clothing.
