Key Briefs & Reports: Meeting with Senate Staffer

Dr. Thang Nguyen, Executive Director for BPSOS, a CAMSA Coalition founder, met with a staffer at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to discuss labor trafficking issues in Vietnam.

The staffer took great interest in the case and informed Dr. Thang that he will bring this case up before the Vietnamese officials when he meets with them later this month.

During discussions on Vietnamese law, Dr. Thang brought up the Sony-JR Holdings case in which 15 Vietnamese women workers were trafficked to Malaysia to work for Sony.  As part of a three pronged approach, Dr. Thang has brought this case up to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the State Department, and will meet with Ambassador-at-Large Louis CdeBaca, the Director of the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (G/TIP), to brief him on the case before the latter heads to Malaysia.
