Pimp from China sentenced to six years in jail for vice offences
A Chinese national who forced a 17-year-old girl to prostitute herself in Singapore and lived on her immoral earnings was sentenced to six years on Thursday.
Tang Huisheng shouted in Mandarin: "This, to me, is very unfair!'' as he was being led away by auxiliary policemen from the dock. The 37-year-old, whose sentence was backdated to June 7, had pleaded guilty to four charges - bringing the girl here for the purpose of prostitution; living on her immoral earnings; harbouring her at Guillemard Road; and abetting a customer to pay her $100 for her sexual services
Community Court Judge Shaiffudin Saruwan said a custodial sentence was warranted to deter like-minded offenders. Tang, he said, had subjected the minor to extreme physical, mental and sexual abuses. He also noted that the girl was made to serve 150 clients in a short 15 days, translating into a numbing figure of 10 clients each day. Tang took away all her prostitution earnings of $9,000.
Mr Shaiffudin said Tang's depravity, callousness and outright cruelty were viewed with abhorrence.
