Human Trafficking: United States Vs. Theresa Mubang June 17, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — kikenileda @ 2:05 PM

In November 2004, a federal jury in Greenbelt, Maryland,convicted
Theresa Mubang of holding Evelyn Chumbow, a young woman originally from
Cameroon, West Africa, in involuntary servitude and of harboring her
for commercial gain. The evidence revealed that Mubang had convinced
Chum-bow’s relatives to send the eleven-year old Chumbow from Cameroon
to the United States with Mubang. Mubang assured Chumbow’s family that
she would care for Chumbow as her own daughter, sending her to American
schools and giving her the opportunities of an American life.

once they arrived in the United States, Mubang forced Chumbow to cook,
clean, and care for Mubang’s two young children twenty-four hours a
day, seven days a week. Mubang forced Chumbow to perform these duties
by cutting Chumbow off from family and friends and by mentally and
physically abusing the young Chumbow, beating with her fists,
high-heeled shoes, cable cords, and metal broom handles. Almost two
years after arriving in the United States, Chumbow escaped Mubang’s
home when Mubang was out of town.

In an exhaustive investigation
that eventually led them to Cameroon, federal ICE investigators learned
that Chumbow was not the only victim of Mubang’s scheme to secure free
labor. Before Chumbow arrived in the United States, Mubang lured
ten-year old Cecilia Nkolo to the United States under the same guise.
Once neighbors informed local authorities that the precocious Nkolo was
staying home from school to care for a young child, Mubang shipped
Nkolo back to Cameroon,later replacing her with the more reserved
Chumbow. After Chumbow ran away, Mubang smuggled in another young woman
from Cameroon to take over the work, until she, too, ran away.

Mubang’s conviction, the district judge -over the government’s
objection — released Mubang to home detention pending sentencing.
Shortly before sentencing, however, Mubang escaped and fled the United
States, leaving her two children in the care of her mentally
handicapped brother. Mubang was then sentenced in absentia to seventeen
and half years of prison and ordered to pay the now 18-year-old Chumbow
$100,000 in restitution. Soon after Mubang’s escape, federal
investigators learned that she had returned to her hometown of Bamenda,
Cameroon. In a joint effort between the U.S. Department of Justice,
U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Department of State investigators,
Cameroonian members of Interpol,and Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) special agents, Mubang was arrested in Bamenda in the early
morning hours of May 26, 2005. She was expelled from Cameroon and flown
back to the United States on May 28, 2005 to begin serving her lengthy
prison term.

Additionally, prior to the involuntary servitude
trial, Mubang had spent time in prison for committing the largest
Medicare fraud scam in the state of Virginia. By fleeing the United
States, Mubang violated the terms of her supervised release for that
prior crime. When she was returned to the United States, Mubang was
sentenced in the Eastern District of Virginia to an additional six
months imprisonment, thereby receiving a total prison sentence of
eighteen years.

    I read in an article posted UPSTATION that Theresa Mubang’s brother, John Mubang, is in the in court for a medical scams and related misdeamenors. Isn’t it true that a rabbit can never give birth to kids with short ears? Poor Pa Mubang! What has he done to deserve all this? ONLY HE CAN ANSWER this intriguing question. Dr. Peter Vakunta.
