Until this time, Ari said that there are still victims of trafficking and fraudulent marriages from other regions in Indonesia in Indonesian Embassy. Their average age is 20 – 35 years old.

“There are two victims that we rescued by thwarting their smuggling. Currently, the Indonesian Embassy is dealing with other trafficking and fraudulent marriages cases that its victims cannot return to Indonesia yet.” he added.

By the information collected by Immigration Office, the victims were treated badly during their time in China.
