TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Vietnamese woman, who came to Taiwan as a tourist but has been working in the sex trade, was caught hiding while nude in a brothel wardrobe raided by police in southern Taiwan’s Tainan City last week, reported Apple Daily.
As part of a raid on three brothels in Tainan City last week, a Vietnamese woman working as a prostitute was caught off guard and tried to hide nude in a wardrobe before she had a chance to wear clothing. She was one of nine Vietnamese woman arrested at three locations that day for engaging in prostitution while visiting Taiwan on a tourist visa.
A 45-year-old Vietnamese woman surnamed Nguyen (阮), who married a Taiwanese man and has lived in Taiwan for 20 years, has opened three “erotic health centers” in Tainnan and has taken advantage of the New Southbound Policy to recruit women from Vietnam, offering them “one month of pay for a day’s work.” Nguyen has allegedly been posting photos of the young women on social media to drum up business, eventually drawing the attention from authorities.
National Immigration Agency received a tipoff and sent a report to the Tainan District Prosecutor’s Office to direct an investigation. On Jan. 8, the Tainan Investigation Bureau, together with Tainan’s Shanhua and Yongkang Precinct police carried out a raid on the three erotic massage parlors. [FULL STORY]
