Bangladeshi arrested for running prostitution syndicate in Malaysia
A Bangladeshi man, 30,  was arrested under Section 12 of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Acts (ATIPSOM) for running a prostitution syndicate in Melaka, Malaysia on Sunday. The illegal Bangladeshi is also believed to be the mastermind of the prostitution syndicate called Ohsim, reports the Malaysian Digest. During a raid by the Melaka police of Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies Division (D7), eight people were arrested from an apartment in Taman Kota Laksamana in Melaka at 2am. Among the arrested, four were Bangladeshi men in their 30s including the mastermind of the syndicate. Four women, including two Indonesian and a local in her 20s were also among the arrested. The syndicate is believed to have been in operation for over two years, around Taman Kota Laksamana. According to the Malaysian Digest: "They always change their premises and this time the police arrested them in an apartment on the third level of the building. Their modus operandi is for the customers to contact the pimp or go directly to the premises apart from them bringing the women to a different location for a fee of RM60 for one service." Police have also seized a box and 19 units of condom followed by a customer log in the raid which ended at 4am. During the raid, customers were coming to the premises to seek prostitution services. One woman, who was saved, claimed that she makes RM6,000 a month. The money is then shared equally among the pimps, reports the Malaysian Digest. The Bangladeshis arrested did not possess any valid travel documents. Meanwhile, Melaka Tengah District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Afzanizar Ahmad confirmed the arrests and said that the suspects were remanded for 21 days, in accordance with ATIPSOM. Prostitution is illegal in Malaysia and criminalised under Section 372B of the country's criminal code.
