Blue Dragon was in court today, representing a trafficking survivor. Sadly, the traffickers are relatives of the 12-year-old girl. They sold her for a forced marriage in China. One was sentenced to 10 years, and the other to 5 years in prison. They were also ordered to pay her USD$1800. The girl is now 15 years old and living in Hanoi under Blue Dragon’s care. Her mother died when she was little, and her father and stepmother are too poor to look after her. She is back in school and relieved that her traffickers have been caught and imprisoned; and unable to sell other girls to China.
