Chinese police recapture top human traffickerNovember 11th, 2011 - 12:03 am ICT by IANS
Kunming (China), Nov 10 (IANS) After two years on the run, a woman accused of trafficking nearly 30 women and children has been recaptured, the authorities said Thursday.
Wu Zhenglian, 26, wanted by the Ministry of Public Security, was caught in a central Chinese county Nov 7 with her young child after fleeing house arrest in her home province of Yunnan, Xinhua reported.
Police in Wenshan Zhuang and Miao prefecture of Yunnan said Wu and her husband, Hou Xihong, were suspected of selling eight abducted baby girls and one baby boy for 70,000 yuan ($11,000) between 2007 and 2008.
Hou was arrested in 2009 by police but Wu was placed under house arrest because she had recently given birth, police said.
However, Wu managed to escape with her girl during the Chinese New Year celebrations in 2009 and continued with the human trafficking business.
