A man in Binh Dinh Province tricked his close friend into becoming an illegal worker in Cambodia in order to avoid “being beaten” by his employer.
Huynh Thanh Nhon, from the central province’s capital town Quy Nhon, has been detained for four months by the police in Binh Dinh while he is under investigation for human trafficking.
The police said Nhon had cooperated with several people to traffic people into Cambodia to work against their will. Victims were not allowed to leave their workplaces, were beaten and left to starve for several hours. They were forced to pay money if they wanted to go back to Vietnam.
