Traffickers behind bars

POLICE have freed 3,455 children and 7,365 women in nearly nine months since a campaign against human trafficking was launched in early April last year, an official from the Ministry of Public Security said yesterday.

The police broke up 1,684 criminal gangs in the process as of December 28, a ministry spokesman said.

He said that so far 19 out of 20 suspects on the ministry's most-wanted list of serious abduction crimes had been arrested.

In a move to intensify the fight against abductions, once a missing child was reported, the ministry would ask police to immediately search for the missing person, investigate the crime scene, file evidence for further investigation, and collect blood samples for the database, he said.

A special group should be set up to handle each child abduction case, and the group would not be dismissed until the case was solved.
