Myanmar Anti-Trafficking Police Force says it has exposed a total of one hundred and ninety-one human trafficking cases across the country in the first nine months of 2019.
Myanmar said that from January to September 2019, 556 traffickers were charged in connection with the cases and two hundred and seventy-nine people were victimized.
Myanmar added that altogether twenty-five people including seven children were victimized, while fifty-four 54 traffickers were charged in connection with fifteen human trafficking cases in September alone.
Under Myanmar’s 2005 Anti-Trafficking in Persons Law, people who smuggle women and children were sentenced to at least ten years or up to lifetime sentence or fine.
Myanmar also said, money or property received through trafficking will be confiscated by the government.
