PSNews - The Criminal Police Department under the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and the Criminal Investigation Department under the Chinese Ministry of Public Security on June 27 held a conference to deploy a campaign against human trafficking in 2018.
Senior Colonel Tran Ngoc Ha, Director of the Criminal Police Department under the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and Mr. Tran Sy Cu, Deputy Director of the Criminal Investigation Department under the Chinese Ministry of Public Security co-chaired the event.
According to the conference's report, human traffickers take advantage of the good traditional relationship between the two countries as well as the two nations’ open policies on international economic integration and the cross-border family relations to carry out criminal activities along the Vietnam-China shared border.
Every year, the Vietnamese authorities discover and handle about 400 cases of human trafficking with a large majority of the cases related to trafficking Vietnamese people to China.
At the conference, delegates of the two sides review the situation of human trafficking across the border between Vietnam and China, as well as discussed and agreed on the contents of the campaign against human trafficking.
It is forecasted that the cross-border human trafficking from Vietnam to China will still remain complicated and on the rise in the coming time with such tricks as fake illegal marriages, forced labor, women trafficking and children kidnapping.
In order to effectively prevent the human trafficking crime, Vietnamese and Chinese functional forces will continue to maintain close coordination, and deploy joint attacks on human trafficking within the territory of each country from July 1st to September 30th.By An Nhien
