Chinese women rescued from Angolan den of vice (4)

Xu brought these women to Angola, promising to find them employment as servants or foot masseurs, and give them high salaries. Plane tickets and visa fees were paid in advance.

"The women found these tokens very attractive," said Yin Guohai, a senior officer from the ministry's criminal investigation bureau, who was in charge of the case.

But when they arrived, the situation was totally different. "A foot masseur got only $16 of the $40 paid by a customer," Yin told China Daily.

"It would take a woman at least a year to be able to raise the $5,000 received in advance as air fare and visa fee. Saving money was out of the question."

Then Xu began persuading them to provide sexual service to the customers, as a way of making more money, Yin said. "A woman could make $30 each time she did that, and spending a night with the customer would get her more than $100."

"Although we found we had been cheated, the local public security was in disorder and we didn't have enough money to go back to China. We were mentally and physical exhausted, almost desperate. Finally we had to obey them," said Li Jie, one of the women victims from Sichuan province.
