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.
