JOHANNESBURG - A South African woman rescued from an international sex trafficking syndicate in Malaysia is expected to arrive in South Africa this evening.
The 27-year-old woman, along with eight other victims, were rescued from a hotel room in Malaysia where they were being held captive by their handler.
The women who are from different parts of the world were trafficked to Malaysia last week Saturday after they responded to taking part in a beauty pageant.
It’s understood the suspect had planned to ship them out to several parts of the world as sex slaves but is now in police custody.
Hawks Spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said, “We want to thank our Interpol counterparts in South Africa for playing a lead in this issue.”
