A man was sentenced on Monday to 12 weeks' jail for paying $100 for the sexual services of a Vietnamese minor.

Yip Kwok Hong, 60, who is married with two grown-up children, is the ninth man to be dealt with for commercial sex involving Vietnamese nationals.

A district court heard that the sef-employed man and his two friends had met the victim, then 16, and her friend at a dessert shop in Lorong 42 Geylang sometime in July last year.

He communicated with the girl in Vietnamese. They exchanged contact numbers. He left the shop at 10pm and told her that he would contact her later.
