Three Cambodian surrogates arrested in Vietnam

 

The article stated that two of the women are pregnant and one has delivered a baby, according to a spokesman for the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

The Court charged the women with selling, buying or exchanging a person for cross-border transfer under Cambodia's anti-human trafficking law.

Cambodia outlawed surrogacy in 2016. Since then, dozens of women acting as surrogates and those running illegal surrogacy businesses have been arrested on trafficking charges.

A draft law, which could legalise altruistic surrogacy, is still under discussion.
