A prostitution ring operated by Sri Lankan pimps in a noted red light area in Singapore and involving scores of Sri Lankan women has been exposed in a video aired by the Singapore Home Ministry and the anti vice squad of that country.

The secretly shot video shows a group of Sri Lankan women seeking customers at Lorang 15 in the Geylang district under the watchful eyes of Sri Lankan pimps, most of whom are said to be well known in the area and operating there for well over a year. One Sri Lankan sex worker is shown getting into an argument in Sinhala with another woman over clients and rates, before a pimp had to intervene resulting in one of them breaking down in tears before composing herself to get on with her chosen profession.

According to the video narrator, quarrels and fights among Sri Lankan sex workers over customers are now becoming a common occurrence with the women reportedly having no choice but to seek clients regardless of race or religion.

While some women are keen to return home, the narrator says they are however not keen to reveal the identity of the pimps out of fear. However the secretly shot video gives a close-up view of the pimps while CCTV images also reveal their identity.

The Daily Mirror has meanwhile learnt that among the women are some who went to Singapore after being duped with prospects of better employment but have ended up being forced into prostitution as a means of survival without a means of returning home.

A well informed source in Singapore said most of the women were stranded in Singapore and were scared or ill informed on how to seek assistance from the Sri Lankan mission in the country. The Sri Lankan embassy in Singapore could not be reached for a comment as the high commissioner was at a meeting

Prostitution is legal in Singapore and Geylang is known as the red light town of the country where local and foreign women offer cheap sex leading to an increase in crime and violence in the area forcing the Geylang police to crackdown on some of these activities.

The Singapore Home Affairs Ministry has last year some 5,400 foreign prostitutes were arrested, a 25% increase compared to 2006. Besides enforcement, police have also initiated several vice-control measures. For example, last year they began placing CCTVs along selected Geylang streets to prevent crime and this has deterring effect in soliciting by sex workers. The police also impose stringent licensing conditions for entertainment outlets and massage parlours in the area.

This is disgusting. Some of those poor girls must surely be little more than slaves. The animals responsible for this should be hunted down and dealt with SEVERELY!

What about the Sri lankan domestic servants in middle east?It is said that most were sexually assaulted by there employers.
It is high time to carry out census to estimate the number of SriLankan women sexually assaulted by local and foreign employers!

The language the sex workers speak point to the desperate situation that exists in the South. The govt makes use of the foreign exchange maids, sex workers, diaspora send home to help their families to buy arms from Pakistan and Israel to bomb and kill the poor civilians in the North.

Desperate situation in the south indeed. If you want to see the real pimps, read 'Mani Tale and the Money Trail' by Rajiva Wijesingha. It's got pics like in the You Tube video.

Didnt know prostitution was legal in singapore.

here folks getting caught soliciting are either sent a letter home and sent john school. i think prostitution should be legalized so that these girls have some sort of legal recourse. as for the pimps castrate the bums!

Prostitution is legal in Singapore. that provided they have to go for medical check up and get license.

how ever, sri lanakans don't flow the rule.
Sri Lanakans get slandered in Singapore, take the paid / un paid job as pimps.

most of the woman aged 20-25years brought over to Singapore as business, they asked to go for the cheap prostitutions to Bangladesh and Indian workers who work as a contraction and street cleaners in Singapore.

rate is the lovers as $25 for a sri lankan girls, where as china girls start at $80 per 20 min.

due to their skin color age and fat.

sri Lanakan woman work as free lance sex workers in Singapore, they don't have license. if police arrives they have to run away, so sri lankan pimps gives the tips etc,

how ever, the pimps are sri lanka colombo born ager 30-35 years. they don't have a clue of Singapore police.

how ever, the sri lankans girls were told that pimps pay money to police and have big contacts like in sri lanka.

normally the poor girls got cheated in that way, once the police arrives, pimps are the one runs away first, also pimps makes the forge visa stamps for the girls.

pimps uses to get a commission of $5 or more for their service to them. normally Colombo born unemployed man 30-35years works as pimps in Singapore. from the hair cut it shows where they from.

after a mon or so, the girls will return to sti lanka back as tourists. with lots of electronic goods etc, and they come back again and make the air ticket money and some for their expenses, and good life in Singapore.

This case is very bad, may be due to the bad attitudes of sri lankan girls, not knowing about the sex trade, could be a forigner want to have sex with sri lankan girl, due to her attitude, he would have killed her.

normally contraction workers from India are very rude. sri lankans and they cant get along in most of the cases. since sri lankan girls sold for cheap, they approach them.

however, its a sad story to have a sri lankan girls body under a red light district in Singapore known as Geylang.

this trade happening for last 7 years, now only it cames all in the newspapers due to murder.

Sri Lankan government not able to buy arms / bombs to kill tamils in the north by selling sex workers to Singapore.

Sri Lanakan sex workers barely able to cover their air fare and living expense in Singapore.

Sri Lanakan sex workers don't have prostitution license in Singapore unlike Thai girls,
so Sri Lankan girls sold cheap as freelances in Singapore - in Geylang.

They can cover their travel expenses, and have good life in Singapore. thats all they can have. no additional money to buy arms :) however, they can buy deodorants to their arms.
