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".

Illegal for Malaysians to work in Singapore without valid work passes

It is illegal for Malaysians to work in Singapore if they do not have valid work passes, said Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin in Parliament on Tuesday. He was responding to a question from Mr Baey Yam Keng (Tampines GRC) who wanted to know how many Malaysians cross the Causeway regularly on social visit passes to work in the informal sector here, such as as freelance plumbers, technicians or electricians. The ministry conducts random checks and acts on public complaints, he said, but it is not realistic to expect the practice to be completely eradicated.
