Twin brothers from India jailed in Singapore for pimping

Jun 12 2013, 5:42am CDT | by

Singapore, June 12 (IANS) Two men from India, who are twin brothers, have been sentenced to jail by a court here for working as pimps.

Singapore, June 12 — Two men from India, who are twin brothers, have been sentenced to jail by a court here for working as pimps.

Raman and Lakashmanan Selvaraj, 26, were sentenced to a three-and-a-half month jail term for working as pimps for a vice syndicate in the Geylang area of this city-state, The Straits Times reported Wednesday.

The brothers, who had pleaded guilty to the charge June 3, had hoped for a fine but were shocked on hearing the jail sentence.

According to the report, Lakashmanan had arrived in Singapore in October last year and was met by Balamurugan Selvam Paneer, who ran a vice ring that exploited women from India.

Lakashmanan started buying food for prostitutes and collected their earnings, which he handed over to Balamurugan.

Balamurugan would then deduct the expenses and send the rest of the collections to the vice ring's boss who is based in India.

The government takeover of our health care system didn't happen with the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, says Avik Roy, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. It happened in 1965, he writes, with the creation of Medicare and Medicaid. Even without the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the federal government would be spending trillions of taxpayer dollars on single-payer health care entit ...

Germany Added A Lot Of Wind And Solar Power, And Its Electric Grid Became More Reliable

Aug 12 2014 1:58pm CDT | Source: ThinkProgress

To hear its critics tell it, Germany’s ambitious push to switch over to renewable energy has delivered an electrical grid that’s capricious, unreliable, and prone to blackouts. But according to data highlighted by ECO Report last week, the reality on the ground couldn’t be further from that caricature. Specifically, the availability of electricity in Germany was lost only for an average of 15.91 minutes per customer in 2012, according to fi ...
