Woman convicted for trafficking Myanmar woman for forced marriage


The Mawlamyine District Court sentenced a woman named Daw Rahima Bi who lived in Kyaikmaraw Township, Mon State, for trafficking a 20-year-old woman, who lived in the same town, for forced marriage to a Thai man.
Daw Rahima Bi lured the girl into working at her shop in Thailand with the offer of 10,000 baht as a monthly salary and promised her to find another job if she didn’t want to do so. However, after she had arrived in Thailand, she was forced to marry a Thai man, from which Daw Rahima Bi gained a financial profit.
A case was filed against her under Section 24 of the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons Law at the Kyaikmaraw Township Police Station, and the court sentenced her to ten years in prison. — MNA
