Special hearing for pimp who denies drugging teenage girl and forcing her into prostitution
A special hearing will be held on Thursday over a pimp's denial that he forced a teen into prostitution here and drugged her in China.
Chinese national Tang Huisheng, 37, had earlier admitted to four vice-related offences including abetting a customer to have paid sex with the 17-year-old.
A Community Court was told earlier that Tang beat the girl and fed her with methamphetamine or Ice and had sex with her while she was in a stupor. When she refused his demands for sex, he would beat her up.
The girl had been forced by family circumstances to seek work in Macau but could not work at the casino due to her age. Tang's sister then lured her into meeting Tang in Zhuhai, China. When Tang told the minor that he would be bringing her to Singapore to work as a prostitute, she refused. She even leapt from a fifth-floor unit in a bid to escape but was caught and threatened by the Tang siblings.
