Police in the northern Vietnamese province of Bac Kan have arrested a young man for selling his girlfriend to a Chinese national for VND15 million (US$645).

Officers under the provincial Department of Police confirmed on Tuesday that they had captured Trieu Tien Manh, 20, a resident of Cho Moi District, for human trafficking.

A preliminary investigation showed that Manh had previously worked in the northern province of Bac Ninh and met H.T.N., 19, a worker at a local industrial park.

Manh flirted with N. and the two eventually developed a relationship.

On July 17, Manh said he was going to visit his foster mother in China and asked if N. wanted to come with him.

After reaching the border area in Mong Cai City in the northern province of Quang Ninh, Manh spoke to several contacts and sold N. to a Chinese national for VND15 million.

After two months of being held in China, N. managed to run away and return to Vietnam on September 17.

She later reported the case to local police officers.

Local authorities are finalizing their probe and are determined to impose suitable punishment on Manh.
