Police Raid Matchmaking Session in Vietnam

Nguoi Viet, Posted: Feb 24, 2009

SAIGON, Vietnam -- Police here Monday raided a house in the Binh Chanh District where a marriage broker was parading 31 Vietnamese women before two South Korean men. Vietnamese and South Korean authorities are cracking down on the practice of illegal match-making which has led to high rates of divorce, spousal abuse and suicide.

Police said the women, who were vying to sell their hand in marriage to the men, were jammed into a tiny house. Police arrested three people who allegedly organized the matchmaking session, Khai Huynh, Hoa Nguyen and Kim Do. Khai, 33, allegedly told police he had rented the house as the base of his illegal marriage agency.

According to police, Khai said a broker named Oanh in Tan Binh District asked him Monday morning to prepare for the exhibition and Hoa then transported the women there.
