Three women from Khujand detained for sexual exploitation

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Three women from Khujand, the capital of the northern province of Sughd, have been jailed for sexual exploitation. The Khujand city court sentenced the women to various jail terms on July 21.

Two of them were sentenced to 9 and 8 years in prison. The sentence followed their conviction on charges of human trafficking. The third woman, charged with not reporting crime to police, was sentenced to one year in prison.

“They were attempting to traffic two local young women to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). They promised the women jobs with good salary, but the women they recruited were actually intended for UAE brothels,” Nargis Nabizoda, a judge at the Khujand city court, told Asia-Plus in an interview.

They were reportedly detained at the Dushanbe airport.

The trial began in the Khujand city court on July 14.
