Vietnamese man sold his daughter, 13, to Chinese traffickers for $4,300 to pay for medical treatment


A Vietnamese father from the province of Nghệ An was sentenced to 14 years in prison for selling his daughter to human traffickers.

Lo Pho Pheng, 47, sold his 13-year-old biological daughter to a man in China for over 150 million Vietnamese dong (approximately $6,550) when he lacked the money to pay for medical treatment for a heart condition.

Pheng met with Lo Thi Cam, 35, in 2018 to propose selling his daughter, who referred him to Moon Thi Xum, 46.
