Man arrested for smuggling laborers to Japan

A local resident has been detained for smuggling illegal workers to Japan, the Exit-Entry Administration of Shanghai Public Security Bureau said today.

The suspect surnamed Zhang has smuggled more than 50 female sewing workers to Japan since 2009 and made a profit of about 76,000 yuan from the "business."

Police said Zhang forged official stamps and papers for visa application and claimed the sewing workers were on a study tour organized by a well-known Shanghai garment manufacturer.

After these workers obtained a three-month visa and arrived in Japan, Zhang would send them to clothes factories in Fukuoka and Osaka for low-pay jobs.

Zhang charged commission, guarantee money and even management fees from these workers, and has spent almost all the money he made. As a result, the workers won't be able to get their money back.
