FIA Arrests 8 Chinese Men Involved In Trafficking Pakistani Girls

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Monday arrested eight Chinese nationals involved in human trafficking in Pakistan. The men are allegedly involved in trafficking Pakistani girls into China and forcing them into prostitution.

The arrests were made during a crackdown launched in Punjab. According to the FIA, the arrested Chinese nationals take Pakistani girls to China after marrying them and later force them into prostitution.

The suspects arrested on Monday include Wang Hao, Shoi Sheli, Wong Yhazou, Chang Shail Rai, Pan Khowajay, Wang Bao, Zaothi and Kaindisko.

Earlier on Thursday, the FIA raided a wedding ceremony in Faisalabad and arrested the groom identified as Chang. Father of the bride identified as Zahid, matchmaker agent Kashif and a Chinese woman named Mendes were also arrested.

Recently, reports surfaced from Lahore and parts of Southern Punjab that Pakistani women were being illegally trafficked in the guise of false marriage and then their organs were sold in China.

Responding to the reports, the Chinese Embassy in Islamabad issued a statement after a female lawmaker voiced her concerns over the issue in parliament.

“Chinese laws and regulations strictly prohibit cross-national matchmaking centers. China is cooperating with Pakistani law enforcement agencies to crack down on illegal matchmaking centers,” the Embassy said.
