TWO more men were jailed 10 weeks each for engaging in commercial sex with a 17-year-old Chinese national who was forced by her pimp to work as a prostitute.
This brings the total number of men sentenced so far to 15. Ng Keng Siong, 56, a project manager, admitted paying S$80 (RM205) for the sexual services of the minor at Budget One Hotel in Geylang on May 20. He had another charge committed the next day taken into consideration.
In the same court, assistant manager Ong Boon Hock, 61, admitted paying S$60 (RM153) for the teen’s services at a lodging house in Lorong 21 Geylang between May 19 and 23. He, too, had a second similar charge considered.
According to both men, they had asked the minor for her age. She told them she was 19 and 20 respectively. But neither of them took any steps to verify this. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
