Chinese police have saved more than 1,100 foreign women from Southeast Asia who were “sold” as wives, at the end of last year, authorities said on Friday.

The Ministry of Public Security said in a statement that a total of 17 children were also rescued in joint operations with Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand policemen between July and December last year.

He said over 1,300 suspects, including 260 foreigners, were arrested during a raid on allegations of ‘kidnapping and selling people and marriage fraud’.

“In recent times, some domestic and international crimes are acting in the hands of women from neighboring countries to China by being promised work or getting married and kidnapping some women selling them as wives,” ministry spokesman Guo Lin said.

For a decade, Beijing introduced the basics of one family having only one child and his choice was the boys that caused China to experience a deficiency of nearly 33 million women.

As a result of the poverty-stricken, young women from the Mekong region are tricked into marriage in China.

However, some of them were victims of the ‘marriage fraud’ syndicate that caused them to be at risk of being abused, being arrested under Chinese immigration laws or forced into prostitutes. -AFP
