Kratie woman arrested for human trafficking

The Kratie provincial court on Saturday put a woman in pre-trial detention on a human trafficking charge after she was arrested for illegally sending migrant workers to Malaysia.

Provincial deputy police chief Nov Ratana said the 31-year-old suspect, who worked for a recruitment agency, began sending migrant workers to Malaysia since 2014.

“She brought workers from different provinces to Phnom Penh. She helped them get passports and blood tests. The workers had valid passports but used tourist visas.” she said.

Ratana said the arrest was made after police received a complaint from the parents of a victim late last year. Police are pursuing more suspects in the case.
