77 Chinese kids missing in UK

By Xie Yu (China Daily)

Updated: 2009-05-09

China's Foreign Ministry said it is "verifying" claims that 77 Chinese children went missing from a home in Britain, allegedly sold to work in the prostitution and drugs trade.

British newspaper The Guardian, citing a secret immigration document on Tuesday, said at least 77 Chinese children had gone missing since March 2006 from the children's home, operated by the London borough of Hillingdon.

The anti-human trafficking office, under China's Ministry of Public Security, said on Friday that it has learnt of the case and Chinese police may take part in the investigation.

Chinese police have experience in taking joint action with other countries in cracking down on human trafficking, said the office. It has signed a memorandum of cooperation with its British counterparts, so if the trafficked children were Chinese citizens, the office can become involved.

The Guardian cited the "restricted" report as saying victims of a trafficking network, that has agents based as far apart as China, Brazil, Japan, Malaysia and Kenya, arrived at the home just outside the airport perimeter, only to disappear almost immediately.

China's embassy in London said on Friday it hoped the UK side could clarify the issue as soon as possible.

An embassy spokesman said China is opposed to human trafficking of all kinds.

Only four of the 77 children have been found, according to The Guardian. Two girls returned after a year of exploitation in brothels in the Midlands. Others, said the article, are coerced with physical threats to work as street-sellers of counterfeit goods. It is thought many also work on illegal cannabis farms.

UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown vowed on Wednesday to investigate the report.

buddy

While there is an investigation going on, why don't you find the thousands of children missing from Guangdong.
Shenzhen alone is missing a couple of thousand sons and daughters.
Or is that not your kind of news?

well, bantopost, one can't weigh a crime against another. When children are sold by criminals, then these criminals have to be found and punished. In this case, I totally agree to buddy (rarely enough, lol).

And such a crime is not typical for "filthy greedy barbarian Anglos", it's something that, unfortunately, can happen everywhere. And whereever it happens, it has to be persecuted with the same rigour. Similar things also happen in China, but these 2 cases are not linked together, so one can write about the one, no matter what happens somewhere else....

Of course, what buddy35 (a British citizen) cannot cope with is that " China, Brazil, Japan, Malaysia and Kenya" are, alas, not part of the Western world he enjoys loathing.

This is really shocking and horrible news! Lets hope that the co-operation and joint effort of the Chinese and UK police will prove effective and that these children can be found (and that the guilty people of this unspeakable crime are properly punished).
