Two Myanmar women have been charged for trafficking two girls into China, according to the Myanmar Central Body for Suppression of Trafficking in Persons.
On September 27, two women from eastern Myannar’s Lashio in Shan State reported to the Muse (border town) Special Police that the two underage girls had been trafficked by a woman named Nan Ayepu.
The Muse Special Police coordinated with China’s Jian Fung Border Coordinator’s office and arrested Nan Ayepu in Rinjian town on September 27.
During the interrogation, Nan Ayepu said she worked together with Aye Han from Mansi City in China. They conspired to traffic one girl from Moemate town in July for 15,000 yuan (US$2,300) and another girl for 25,000 yuan ($3,900). The girls were to marry Chinese men.
Aye Han is still at large.
