Ill-treated Cambodian bride to return home

A Cambodian woman who travelled to China to marry a Chinese man there was “badly treated” by her husband’s family and then had to be rescued and will be returned to Cambodia to ensure her safety.

The rescue operation came about after the 25-year-old woman from Kampong Speu province borrowed a phone from a neighbour and posted a video calling for help from the Cambodian authorities.

According to her statements in the video, she said she had never gotten along with her husband’s family – especially not with her mother-in-law and father-in-law.

Chou Bun Eng, Ministry of Interior secretary of state and the permanent vice-chair of the National Committee for Counter Trafficking, said that immediately after receiving the information about the woman’s plight the Cambodian government intervened by contacting their counterparts in China to arrange the woman’s rescue.

She added that after completing a mandated Covid-19 quarantine period for those who travel between provinces in China, the Chinese police will inform the Cambodian embassy in China to make preparations for her trip home. — The Phnom Penh Post/ANN
