The Central Police Division conducted an enforcement operation against vice activities on 27 December 2018 along Moonstone Lane, Race Course Road and Middle Road.

During the operation, four women, aged between 22 and 29, were arrested for offences under the Women’s Charter. Preliminary investigations revealed that the women advertised their sexual services online and operated from hotels and apartments.

Investigations are ongoing.

Under the Women’s Charter, any person who knowingly lives wholly or in part on the earnings of the prostitution of another person shall be guilty of an offence and shall on conviction be punished with imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years and shall also be liable to a fine not exceeding $10,000.
