In response to allegations and reports of Pakistani women forced into prostitution after marriage with Chinese nationals , the Chinese Embassy has denied media reports that Pakistani women were being forced into prostitution or sale of human organs.
“According to investigations by the Ministry of Public Security of China, there is no forced prostitution or sale of human organs for those Pakistani women who stay in China after marriage with Chinese,” the embassy said in an official statement. “If any organization or individual commits a crime in Pakistan under the banner of the cross-border marriage, China supports the Pakistani side to crack down on it according to Pakistani laws” the embassy said.
“China will further strengthen cooperation with the law enforcement agencies in Pakistan, effectively combat crime, so as to protect the legitimate rights and interests of the two peoples, and jointly safeguard China-Pakistan friendly relations,” the statement added.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in a country wide crackdown against foreigners involved in illegal activities including human trafficking, has arrested more than 15 Chinese on the false pretext of marriage.
The suspects, with the assistance of Pakistani agents, contracted marriages with unsuspecting local girls and then trafficked them to China where the victims were forced into prostitution. Four Pakistanis identified as Qaiser, Kashif Nawaz, Ismail Yousuf and Zahid Maseeh, has also been arrested for providing assistance in trafficking.
A girl rescued by the FIA told the authorities they were threatened with having their organs removed. Another woman from Gujranwala approached a local court seeking nullification of her Nikah with a Chinese man after she fled from China and returned to Pakistan. She appealed to Pakistani girls not to marry Chinese nationals.
