6 women arrested for allegedly carrying out vice activities in private apartments

Six women, aged between 28 and 49, were arrested during an enforcement operation targeting vice activities in private apartments on Wednesday (Oct 9).

They were nabbed in units along Meyappa Chettiar Road and Wilkie Road, said police in a statement on Friday (Oct 11).

The women are believed to have advertised their sexual services online and carried out vice activities in the rented residential units.

This operation is part of the police’s ongoing enforcement efforts to clamp down on vice activities.

"The police will continue to work with members of the public on information submitted regarding vice activities, and take tough enforcement action against those involved," they added in the statement.

"Landlords and hotel owners are advised to exercise diligence in ensuring that tenants do not carry out vice activities inside their premises."

Unlicensed brothel operators may be liable to a fine of up to $10,000 and a jail term of up to five years.

Any person who knowingly lives wholly or in part on the earnings of the prostitution of another person can also face a jail term of up to five years and a fine of up to $10,000.
