Vietnamese to be charged with trafficking in women

2009/12/19

HANOI: Four people will be charged with trafficking in 400 women who were sent to Malaysia and other Asian countries.

Police uncovered the trafficking ring in Ho Chi Minh city late last year when they detained its alleged leader, Nguyen Thi Ngoc Yen, 53, and three of her associates after they had helped a woman check in for a flight to Malaysia.

Most of the trafficked women were from Tay Ninh and other Mekong Delta provinces, said a provincial police officer.

The officer said the alleged traffickers received US$500 (RM1,700) for each woman they sent overseas and an additional US$1,000 if she found a foreign
spouse.

Most of the 400 trafficked women were sent to Malaysia, the officer said, but some were also brought to Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea.

About 80 women found husbands in Malaysia and 223 returned to Vietnam.

The whereabouts of 100 others were unknown, he said, adding some might have been forced into prostitution.

Vietnamese activist charged
Associated Press
December 24, 2009
Hanoi - Vietnamese authorities have charged a well-known human rights lawyer and his associates with subversion, a charge that could carry the death penalty, state news media reported Wednesday.
Prosecutors accused Le Cong Dinh of "working to overthrow the state," a more serious charge than they had initially sought, the Thanh Nien newspaper reported.
Dinh is likely to go on trial within the next two weeks, along with Nguyen Tien Trung, who recently studied engineering in Paris, and Ho Chi Minh City businessmen Tran Huynh Duy Thuc and Le Thanh Long.
When they were arrested in June, police accused Dinh of spreading anti-government propaganda, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors maintain that the four were members of the Vietnam Democratic Party, a U.S.-based group that Vietnam's communist government considers a "reactionary organization."
A fifth defendant, Tran Anh Kim, is to be tried separately in the northern province of Thai Binh.
Dinh was also accused of participating in a three-day training course for nonviolent struggle organized by Viet Tan, a California-based pro-democracy group that Vietnam considers a terrorist organization.
The U.S. Embassy in Hanoi has said there is no evidence to suggest that Viet Tan is a terrorist group.
Dinh, one of Vietnam's most well-known lawyers, represented two human rights attorneys who were jailed by the government in 2007 on charges of spreading anti-government propaganda. At their trial, he made an impassioned defense of free speech.
He studied law at Tulane University in New Orleans on a Fulbright scholarship and has served as vice chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City bar association.
The United States and the European Union have called for Dinh's immediate release.
