The reason why it’s just, next to impossible, to send someone to rescue those who are being sold into human trafficking in Cambodia right now, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The reports on the news media that came continually, of how younger generations of Taiwanese “got invited” to Cambodia to work at high-paying jobs, with their room and board all covered. As they entered into the country, they were all incarcerated by the scam artist groups, beaten, raped, forced to sell, exchanged hands, they were all tortured in various means; even, there were those whose organs were harvested illegally and sold off. Not only in Cambodia, but in northern Burma, Thailand, as well as the Philippines, there were similar cases, attracting the unsuspecting younger generations from Taiwan and from China to “work”.
There were only a handful of luckier youths, through the assortment of means who were, successfully, “rescued” out; even less of them, had been, lucky enough, to successfully run away, then, used an assortment of means (including the help from local Taiwanese merchants, or the rescue groups) to successfully return back to Taiwan. Toward these prevalent cases of human trafficking job scams in Cambodia, our police departments seemed to only be using the more traditional means to handle it, including the officers trying to stop or persuade the potential “victims”; reason being how the government (not just the police forces’) not yet connecting all their resources together. What’s fazing was, the internet, social media, as well as the printed media had the stories reported, why are there so many younger generations of Taiwanese still getting tricked? There may be three possible reasons”
First, the younger generations in Taiwan lacked judgment: maybe because most of these younger adults lacked the worldly experiences, plus, the job outlook here isn’t that well. They were all enticed by the lies of the high wages, and intentionally or unintentionally ignored the hidden potentials of dangers of going overseas to Cambodia. As for why the younger generations in Taiwan lacked the sense, may have to do with the following reasons.
Secondly, the younger generations in Taiwan had drifted too far from education: the market for work isn’t friendly enough, surely, that’s a key reason of why the younger generations from Taiwan lacked the senses they needed. But, the primary cause is due to the education the younger generations had at school being not in synchrony with the skills they needed to find better work. There are a lot of high paying jobs, for instance, the plumbing/electrician, and the construction sites, that the younger generations didn’t want to get their hands dirty in. Secondly, the technical universities were seen as second to the formal universities, keeping the younger generations away from these schools. More importantly however, is how the education is separated from the job outlooks, which directly and indirectly caused the younger generations to not adapt to finding work, causing the next problem.
Third, the younger generations in Taiwan is not connected to the society: the originally in existence connection these younger generations have with the society, became, disconnected due to the complexities in politics, economics, and culture, which made it harder for the youths in Taiwan to find the work. For example, the younger generations of Taiwanese getting scammed to go to Cambodia being so serious now, it’s no longer a matter of security”. But, as the younger generations are tricked to go to Cambodia becoming a huge problem for the society, the government still treated this as a domestic matter of safety and security in the country.
These problems can’t all be tackled in the time being by the government or the society, but the government (not just the police), should come up with the short-term, and long-term policies to respond. For instance, the police already started up their work, with the airport police, and the criminal investigations agency, halting those members of the younger generations from heading off into another country to work; the police department of Tainan had also, started up the reporting programs, the education, and started the searches for potential victims on a grander scale as well. But what we don’t see, is the heads of governments gathering up to discuss, the connecting of the reporting, along with how the national government can work hand-in-hand with foreign countries, to connect the resources they need, to conduct the rescues effectively.
Simply because Taiwan doesn’t have any diplomatic ties with Cambodia, we’d, come into the hardships of conducting the rescues, and the communists’ patrolling our skies also, made the rescues harder directly and indirectly.
And so, this is how our government still doesn’t do ENOUGH, to help those who were sold off as “piggies” in Cambodia, yeah sure, we’re all worried, but, our hands are tied, what, with the communist military planes patrolling our air every two, three days, the ships crossing over the borders of our waters, the government’s completely, too busy, dealing, so how can this government possibly, spare any of its attention to those younger generation members who are sold off in Cambodia, besides, we ain’t got diplomatic ties with the country, which makes rescuing these younger generations even harder still.
