Alert to recruitment information in North Myanmar


Recently, domestic public security organs have received reports of several criminal cases in which Chinese citizens were cheated to the northern part of Myanmar and then kidnapped, illegally detained, extorted and forced into prostitution, according to the consular through train wechat on the 3rd. Many Chinese citizens believed in the recruitment information of “going to Myanmar to work” and were forced to engage in Telecom fraud, gambling and other illegal and criminal activities after they went to Myanmar. If the victim refuses or fails to complete the “performance”, the suspect will commit such criminal acts as beating, detention, extortion, forced prostitution and so on.
At present, there is a high incidence of criminal cases involving our personnel in northern Myanmar. The Consular Department of the Ministry of foreign affairs and the Criminal Investigation Bureau of the Ministry of public security remind Chinese citizens to be vigilant and work outside through regular and legal labor agencies. They should not trust the recruitment information in northern Myanmar. In case of emergency, please call the police to the local and domestic public security organs and contact the Chinese embassy or consulate in the local area for help.
According to the law of our country, it is an illegal and criminal act to illegally cross the border, cheat on telecommunication network and gamble, which will harm others and yourself. The public security organs will severely crack down on it. Please do not engage in relevant activities.
