>> Sex ring charging $2.5k/time smashed in city
My Xuan is facing charges of “providing prostitutes”.
40-year-old Tran Quang Mai, a female barber and bar waitress in downtown HCMC, and 43-year-old Nguyen Huu Dat, a male driver for an event organizing company in HCMC, have also been held on the same charge.
All of the arrestees have confessed their crimes to police.
Investigators said all prostitutes in the ring have been identified.
They are models, actresses, singers who were paid $2,000 to 2,500 per appointment, police added.
The pimps also procured students for clients at a fee ranging from $300 to 600 per time.
But the sex workers just took 40 percent of the profits for selling themselves while the brokers took the rest.
Investigators said at 5:00pm on June 2, the Police Department of Criminal Investigation in Social Order (C45) in Ho Chi Minh City carried out a sudden raid on a big hotel in district 1 and caught four high-class prostitutes engaging in sexual acts with clients. Most of them are models and actresses.
Profiles of pimps
Madam Mai knows many well-off men. She, together with My Xuan and Dat maintained good relationship with a number of actresses, models, and lounge singers. They jointly organized the high-class prostitution ring.
They would ask their prostitutes to hotels to serve clients after receiving orders over the phone.
Meanwhile, Vo Thi My Xuan - one of the arrested procuresses – in 2009 defeated 170 rivals to win a local beauty pageant to become Miss Soc Trang 2009, also known as Miss South Mekong.
The beauty queen was born 1985 in Hau Giang province in the Mekong Delta. She has graduated from a college and is currently an assistant for a marketing company.
After crowning the beauty contest, Xuan worked as a freelance model in Ho Chi Minh City. She told local press she had an unhappy childhood and used to sell lottery tickets to earn a living.
Xuan has recently earned criticism for posting a vulgar collection of nude photos on the internet.
