A woman under suspicion of selling a 15-year-old girl and an 18-year-old lady to China for marriage was finally caught after a four-month hunt!
Both victims had filed a police report against the suspect which launched an investigation this past July. The criminal moved continually, hoping to avoid detection, but the Phnom Penh Police together with the AIM SWAT Team worked to track her down. Though she was tough to locate, information was shared of her whereabouts and a surveillance operation led to her arrest on November 28.
The victims have since returned to Cambodia and are receiving the care they need from a partner NGO while the suspect is being charged with human trafficking crimes and remains in prison until her trial.
