Baby-trafficker gets life in jail

A WOMAN has been sentenced to life in prison and had all her personal property confiscated after trafficking 10 children in south China's Guangdong Province.

Xue Binghui appealed against the verdict on Monday by Jiangmen City People's Intermediate Court, today's Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

The other nine people involved in the trafficking have been jailed for between one and 12 1/2 years. Two were granted leniency with reprieves for their minor roles, including a 73-year-old woman surnamed Feng, the newspaper said.

The court said Xue, who operated a hair salon in Encheng Town, Enping City, sold 10 children from July last year to January this year. Police have rescued nine of the children, all boys from Jiangmen.

Xue sold two in Guangdong's neighboring Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on her own and traded the rest in cooperation with her nine partners, the court said.

Most of the children were abducted except for one who was sold for 21,000 yuan (US$3,000) by his father, the court said.
