  Women tricked into Sex Slavery

In a court case involving a Vietnamese asylum-seeker in China, a court has
uncovered evidence which confirm that
international slave traders tricked Vietnamese villagers into sex trade
working as prostitutes in China by promising them
lucrative sales jobs. The girl's application was rejected in August 1993,
but she is now seeking legal declaration for her
case to be sent to refugee board. She claims to have been brought by a man
in the mainland who "forced her to carry
goods by day and raped her by night." Source: South China Morning Post.
