Three Women Arrested in Muse for Human Trafficking
Three women were arrested in connection with human trafficking at the China-Burma border by Burmese police on 15 July, said an official report.
The source reported that the women were arrested along with six other Burmese women while they were preparing to cross the border gate at Muse, heading into China.
The other six women had no apparent connections to human trafficking and were simply traders who were arrested for not having any valid travel documents.
The three women arrested for trafficking have been identified as Ma Cho Cho Htwe, daughter of U Shi Nyunt, Ma Argar, daughter of U Nawtaw, and Ma Khin Lay, daughter of U San Aye. Ma Cho Cho Htwe was identified as the leader of the group; she comes from Hlaing Township in Rangoon.
"They were produced before court on 17 July and police are still interrogating," a trader from Muse confirmed yesterday.
According to confirmed sources, some human trafficking syndicates have been dispatching young women from Burma to China, where they are sold for large sums of money. #
