The suspects, aged between 22 and 59, were apprehended in the vicinity of Bras Basah Road, Havelock Road, Shanghai Road, and Orchard Road. During the operations, police seized cash amounting to nearly $40,000, mobile phones, and vice-related paraphernalia, such as condoms.

A 59-year-old man, who is believed to have facilitated the operation of an online vice syndicate, is scheduled to be charged in court on April 29. He is accused of knowingly receiving a reward for providing services that aided the prostitution of another person.

Under the Women’s Charter, those found guilty of knowingly soliciting, receiving, or agreeing to receive any reward for providing any service that aids, or may aid, the prostitution of another person can face up to seven years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
