PHNOM PENH, May 12 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia's Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Sunday charged a woman from China's Taiwan region with trafficking Cambodians to work in slave-like conditions on fishing boats off the coast of Africa, police said.

Instigating Judge Leang Samnak accused Lin Yu Hshin, 53, owner of Giant Ocean International Fishery Co. Ltd., of "illegally exporting Cambodian people with a purpose" and ordered the pre- trial detention of the woman, Lt. Gen. Chhiv Phally, deputy chief of the Ministry of Interior's anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection department, told reporters after the court questioned the lady on Sunday.

Lin Yu Hshin was arrested Friday in Siem Reap City after an investigation since late 2011, he said. "Our investigation was made after 169 victims have filed complaints against her," he said."According the complaints, she has been accused of trafficking Cambodian people to work on fishing boats in slave-like conditions -- working 18 hours a day with physical torture and without wages."

He said some victims are still on fishing boats off the coast of Africa.
