11 people in southern Dong Nai Province were sentenced to jail on Monday for trafficking hundreds of people to Cambodia.
Vuong Van Thanh, 36, was sentenced to 12 and a half years in prison for human trafficking by Dong Nai People’s Court. Ten other people were sentenced from three and half years to up to eight years in jail as Thanh’s accomplices or for organizing illegal emigration.
From February to June 2022, Thanh and three accomplices used online accounts to recruit workers, promising them high incomes, in order to lure them to Cambodia for work. For each person sent to Cambodia, Thanh would get $600 as payment.
