OPERATIVES of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) arrested a suspected female human trafficker allegedly involved in trafficking of Filipino women to Malaysia for prostitution.

Suspect Lorena Abao was caught by members of the NBI-Southeastern Mindanao Regional Office (SEMRO) in an operation in Digos City, Davao Del Sur.

The case came to light when a victim of Abao sent a complaint video clip from Malaysia, where she was being forced to work as a sex service provider to male customers.

The NBI-SEMRO and the Bureau of Immigration (BI) immediately conducted an entrapment. They collaborated and posed as job applicants seeking employment in Malaysia offered by Abao.

The joint operation led to Abao’s arrest last March 7.
