Authorities are investigating a Taiwan-based surrogacy company on charges of human trafficking in an Internet racket that may have forced some Vietnamese women to breed for cash.
As of Thursday, seven of the women were pregnant, two recently had given birth and six were not pregnant, Mr. Surapong said.
"According to … the Civil Registration Act, one may claim to be the mother if she is the one who gave birth to that child," Mr. Surapong said. "Once the mother sold her child to others, she may be charged with human trafficking."
