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.

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 ...

Oops! Singapore Changes Anti-Gambling Ads After Germany Wins World Cup

Jul 14 2014 11:00pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Germany's World Cup victory hilariously torpedoed Singapore's anti-gambling campaign and forced its National Council of Problem Gambling (NCPG) to change its ads that tried to discourage people from becoming degenerate gamblers. Singapore's original anti-gambling ads had two kids sitting on soccer balls with a thought bubble above one kid's head reading, "I hope Germany wins. ...
