At a press briefing, Ho Ming-hsien, a deputy chief of an investigations division at the CIB, elaborated on how the crackdown was achieved. He said that an investigation team was formed under the Taipei District Prosecutors Office after the bureau was tipped off that members of a criminal ring were engaged in sex trafficking at rented suites in Taipei, New Taipei and Taoyuan. During its probe, the team found that the ring was headed by a year-old Taiwanese man surnamed Chen, whose sons and daughter, as well as a daughter-in-law, were all members. The group was joined by a year-old Vietnamese spouse, who was in charge of luring her compatriots from low-income families in Vietnam to travel to Taiwan for work in massage parlors. After their arrival, however, the women were forced into prostitution, Ho said, adding that the ring prevented the women from running away by seizing their passports and their earnings from sex deals, threatening them with death, and beating them up if they tried to escape.
