After being tricked by an employment broker, the 26-year-old woman has been identified, located and is now awaiting her return to Cambodia after the National Committee for Counter Trafficking cooperated with Chinese authorities.



PHNOM PENH--A Cambodian woman who was trafficked to China by an employment broker was liberated and taken to a safe place on Oct. 13, according to the National Committee for Counter Trafficking.



Deputy Secretary-General of the Ministry of Interior’s National Committee for Counter Trafficking Chiv Phally said that authorities identified her whereabouts in China. The victim is believed to be a 26-year-old woman from Kampong Cham Province.



The Consulate General of Cambodia in Shanghai has cooperated with Chinese authorities to rescue her in Zhejiang Province, China, Phally said.



She was provided temporary housing by the consulate general of Cambodia in Shanghai and will return to Cambodia shortly, according to Phally.  



The National Committee for Counter Trafficking was reportedly made aware of the woman’s video, which had been uploaded to Facebook and showed her begging Prime Minister Hun Sen to help get her home, on Oct. 8.



Since she was initially tricked by an employment broker, the 26-year-old has spent two years in China without access to healthcare or a phone to call for help.
