A former quality assurance inspector was jailed for 12 months for instigating her teenage god-daughter to have paid sex with a Bangladeshi worker.
The 45-year-old pleaded guilty to instigating the 15-year-old Secondary 3 student to have sex with the co-accused, Md Zahangir Alam (Ronju) Mohammad Ali Sheikh, 30, for S$200 (RM520) at Jin Dong Hotel in Geylang last October.
The inspector, who cannot be named so as to protect the minor, was given a concurrent sentence of four months’ jail and a S$4,000 (RM10,420) fine after admitting to procuring the girl for prostitution.
A district court heard that the minor met the accused last Sept 30 and mentioned that she was in need of money. The accused then suggested that she have sex with men in return for money, and that she could help her find a man.
The next day, the pair went to Chinese Garden to meet the accused’s boyfriend, Bangladeshi national Md Jewel Abdul Latif, 31, who then invited the co-accused to meet them at the Chinese Garden.
That evening, the accused told the minor to get close to the co-accused and offer him sex for S$200 (RM520), saying S$50 (RM130) of her earnings would have to be given to her.
The minor told the co-accused she was 16, and offered him sex for S$200 (RM520). He agreed and all four took a cab to Geylang where they checked into two rooms on Oct last year.
The minor collected S$200 (RM520) from the co-accused who had sex with her five times.
After checking out of the hotel, the co-accused asked for S$50 (RM130) as he had no money.
The minor obliged. She later handed over S$50 (RM130) to the accused. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
