Jiangxi police break nationwide human trafficking gang



POLICE in east China's Jiangxi Province have broken a nationwide human trafficking gang, which had trafficked more than 10 women, including six from Burma.
Police have nabbed five gang members, today's Legal Daily reported.
The investigation started after officers in Jiangxi's Pingxiang City were alerted early in May that three Burmese women had been sold in Changping Town of the city's Shangli County five years before.
Police visited the county and confirmed the trafficking report and discovered the three women's identities. Villagers said they bought the women for 15,000 yuan (US$ 2,194.88) each from a broker nicknamed "Luoyazai."
After investigation, police identified "Luoyazai" as a man surnamed Peng and caught him in Pukou Town of Hunan Province's Liying City.
Peng confessed he had bought the women from six men headed by a man called "Gaolaozi" from Jinghong City in Yunnan Province, which is on border of Burma.
Police rushed to Yunnan and caught "Gaolaozi" who was later identified as a man surnamed Gan.
Police also caught another three gang members including two surnamed Chen and Zhang.
Police said the gang headed by Peng had trafficked more than 10 women, including six from Burma, since 2004.
Besides the three sold in Jiangxi, three other Barmese women were sold in Nanqiao Town of Liying City.
