Child trafficker gets life sentence

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

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

The other nine people involved in the trafficking have been jailed for between one year 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 a town in 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.

She sent the eight children to Zheng Lianxia and Zhang Jinhuai who later forwarded them to Li Yuelan, Zhen Fengnu, Liang Fanglan and Feng. Zhou Dechun and Zhan Xiufeng helped them to sell some of the children in Fujian Province, the court heard.
