Human trafficker set for trial

A 46-year-old Taiwanese man will appear in a Vietnamese court later this month on charges of trafficking more than 100 Vietnamese women into Malaysia, Radio Australia reported today.

Tsai Hsien will be tried alongside five Vietnamese nationals who arranged fake marriages for the women, only to force them to remarry or take part in prostitution once they arrived in Malaysia. The women are thought to have been sold for $2,000 each.
