Enforcement Operation Against Vice Activities

by November 30, 2018 Politics

The Central Police Division conducted an enforcement operation against vice activities on 29 November 2018 along Race Course Road, Farrer Park Station Road and Havelock Road.

During the operation, five women, aged between 22 and 33, were arrested for offences under the Women’s Charter. Preliminary investigations revealed that these women were providing sexual services from hotels and rented apartments.

Investigations are ongoing.

Landlords and hotel owners are advised to ensure that tenants do not carry out vice activities in their premises. Any person who knowingly lives wholly or in part on the earnings of the prostitution of another person can be jailed up to five years and fined up to $10,000.

The Police will spare no effort to clamp down and take tough enforcement action against anyone involved in vice activities. Those found engaging in such activities will be dealt with sternly in accordance with the law.
