In an effort to combat trafficking in women and sexual exploitation, the Ha Noi Justice department has strengthened its efforts to investigate new marriages with foreign citizens by promulgating new regulations. Three hundred officials were informed of the procedures to interview applicant couples and verify the authenticity of their unions. The regulations, which are part of the National Programme on Crime Prevention, seek to prevent fraudulent marriages that conceal human trafficking.
