|The suspect at the police station
According to initial reports, Sen illegally married a man in China in 2014. She returned to Vietnam and built connections with human traffickers in the provinces of Lang Son and Thanh Hoa.
Her and her contacts sought out poor young girls with the aim of taking them to China to either be sold into prostitution or forced to marry local men.
In March, Sen was able to trick two girls from Thanh Hoa province who were born in 1993 and 1999.
Sen told the girls that she would bring them to China for work.
In order to build trust, the suspect gave the pair VND30 million in advance. Fortunately, the police were able to arrest her before she trafficked the victims.
The police are now expanding their investigation in order to build a clearer picture of those responsible.
