Teenager Rescued From T&P Training Center

Police and a human rights group said they rescued a 15-year-old girl from the training center of an overseas job recruitment agency in Kompong Chhnang province on Saturday. A rights worker said two more underage girls had been saved from being sent abroad to work by other recruitment agencies in recent weeks. Moeun Tola, head of the Community Legan Education Center’s labour program, said yesterday that the 15-year-old girl from Taranakkiri province had been brought to the T&P Co Ltd center by a job broker. The broker and the agency, Mr Tola claimed, had colluded to register the teenager under a false name and an older age, so that she would be eligible to work as a domestic servant in Malaysia, which requires migrant workers to be 21 or older.
