Police in Quan Hoa Ward, Cau Giay District said Tuesday that they have found a brothel with underage prostitutes run by 24 year-old Nguyen Thi Nhung.
According to the investigators, a group of boys and girls rented several rooms in Cau Giay Street’s 68 Alley. Four or five of them live together in a room.
Every afternoon, these young girls in revealing clothes, some of whom only 13, are often seen waiting for customers around hostels in Hanoi’s Cau Giay area. Often, three or four of them are accompanied by a man taking them into a hostel.
The girls conducted prostitution under Nhung’s control, according to investigators.
This procurer especially favours two girls, aged 13 and 15, who left home for Hanoi for fun and later worked at a hairdresser’s, where they met Nhung.
A former prostitute herself, Nhung lured the girls to follow her path and told them they would earn big money. Every time Nhung received a request on the phone from a customer, she took the two girls to the hotel herself. They are paid VND700-800,000 (US$35-40) for each visit, half of which are claimed by Nhung.
Currently, Nhung is being detained pending further police investigation into this matter.
