Saturday Special Report: Sex, lies and trafficking

EVERY year, many young women and teenagers from the region are lured to Singapore with the promise of respectable jobs, only to be forced into the sex trade here.

Others come willingly to sell their bodies, but have no idea that they will be locked up or forced to hand over all earnings to pimps.

Prostitutes from the Philippines, China, Sri Lanka and Vietnam can be found in parts of Singapore such as Orchard Towers, and along Geyland Road, Rowell road and Desker Road.

My favourite quote today

"I am afraid the cruise ship is over capacity limit, and it used to be a luxury cruise ship. The designer’s claim that it is not sinkable, the name is Titanic. There are not enough life boats, no preparation or provision for failure. Thank you Mr Goh for reminding us." - Low Thia Khiang

"Till today, I am still puzzled by why the PAP cannot fight a fair election without gerrymandering, abusing the GRC system, basically, making sure they enter into a boxing ring with an opponent who is expected to fight them with hands tied behind the back. There is a reason why bullies are not popular in schools. Why not be the school prefect?" - Alvinology

"The question to ask is what lies at the root of the discontent or the disengagement between the G and the people. I am going to stick my neck out and say that it is ministerial salaries. I consider it the root of all evil. Serious. It reduces what should be a social compact into a business contract. " - Bertha Henson
