by November 7, 2018 Legal and Judicial

The Police have arrested three women, aged between 24 and 31, for offences under the Women’s Charter.

On 5 November 2018, officers from Central Police Division conducted an enforcement operation against vice activities along Victoria Street, resulting in the arrests. Preliminary investigations revealed that the women had advertised their sexual services online and operated from hotels.

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 on vice activities. Those found engaging in such activities will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
