CID BUSTED RUSSIAN VICE RING OFFERING “HIGH CLASS” ESCORT & SEXUAL SERVICES

Police busted a Russian vice ring yesterday and arrested 4 women suspected of carrying out related activities. The raids were conducted on Raffles Boulevard, Tanjong Katong and Cairnhill Rd. 3 of the women who were arrested are from Russia while one is from Uzbekistan. They are on valid work passes and probably made use of their stay here to carry out vice activities. The police uncovered advertisements of sexual services on more than 13 online platforms. Customers can even hire their "high class" escort service at $500 an hour or book the girls via their mobile phones or email addresses. One of the suspects will be charged this weekend under the Women's Charter for living on money earned through prostitution. The others are still undergoing investigations. So much for "high class".

SINGAPOREAN WOMEN MORE DESIRABLE BUT A BAD INVESTMENT FOR LOCAL MEN

There are talks about foreign women scamming Singaporean men. Foreign bride scandals and prostitute’s honey trap. The supply and demand for sex is constant throughout human history. I have a theory to explain why this is happening in Singapore; Singapore’s system wants to protect women. All women regardless of race, language and religion, unfortunately it also gives incentive for exploiting Singaporean men.

WOMEN’S CHARTER IS HERE TO PROTECT WOMEN!

The Women’s Charter is here to protect women. If men think really that they need protection, I can foresee some career women not getting married. And if the men are such poor providers that they must depend on their ex-wife, the children should then follow their mother’s surname, since she is paying the alimony.

PROPOSAL TO TWEAK GENDER BIAS IN WOMEN’S CHARTER

MEN who are incapacitated may soon be able to claim maintenance from the wives they are divorcing. The idea of awarding maintenance based on need and not only gender is one of the proposed amendments to the Women's Charter that may be tabled in Parliament after public consultation ends early next year. Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing revealed this yesterday after he joined a women's group dialogue at the Singapore Council of Women's Organisations (SCWO).

Woman fails in bid to claim maintenance

Ms Chan Wing Sun, 49, had claimed that her lecturer husband, Professor Anthony Guo, 52, used to maintain her on $6,500 a month when they were married. But High Court Justice Belinda Ang made clear that an applicant for maintenance must "appreciate the new realities that flow from the breakdown of a marriage and should not expect to get all she asks for". In judgment grounds released on Monday, she added: "The applicant is expected to exert reasonable efforts to secure gainful employment and contribute to preserve her pre-breakdown lifestyle." The Chinese couple's total disclosed assets were $9.28 million, of which Ms Chan was given 41 per cent, or $3.8 million. The couple married here in 2002 but lived apart after the former Nanyang Technological University lecturer went to work in Monash University's Malaysia campus as an engineering professor seven years later. He filed for divorce and interim judgment was given in 2011.
