SIBU: Three Vietnamese women, believed to be victims of human trafficking, were rescued by the police from a massage centre on Sept 1.

Sibu OCPD, Asst Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said on Saturday (Sept 5) that the three, aged 30,35 and 36, were rescued during a raid on a massage centre located on Jalan Tuanku Osman.

He said the 22-year-old owner of the centre and a 35-year-old caretaker were arrested.

"A customer was also taken to the police station for investigation," he added.

Police seized a used condom, RM200 and a logbook from the centre.

The case is being investigated under Section 12 of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants (Atipsom) Act 2007, which provides for imprisonment up to 15 years and a fine upon conviction.
