Accra, Ghana - Police in Ghana have arrested two Chinese nationals who are alleged to be involved in the trafficking of Vietnamese women to engage in prostitution in Ghana.
The human trafficking unit of the Ghana Police Service said that after more than five months of intelligence and monitoring, seven Vietnamese women were rescued from the Chinese human trafficking ring in western sea port of Takoradi on Wednesday.
The police were assisted by Interpol, the US Embassy, British High Commission and Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The Chinese trafficking group is led by 49-year-old Hwan Se Hui, who is in police custody.
The women, aged between 31 and 38 years, had been promised work in the US but they found themselves in Takoradi where they were kept in a guest house and used as prostitutes.
Police said the women were being counselled and would be sent back home.
