Taipei, Aug. 10 (CNA) Three Control Yuan members said they will investigate existing regulations for applications to hire migrant seaman after a broker in Yilan allegedly infringed on human trafficking laws.

In a statement, Control Yuan members Wang Mei-yu (王美玉), Wang Yu-ling (王幼玲), and Chi Hui-jung (紀惠容) said the investigation stems from an arrest of a manpower broker surnamed Huang (黃) last week.

"The act has seriously violated the country's human rights protection policy," the statement said.    [FULL  STORY]
