Two men convicted in China for indulging in gay prostitution

Two men in China have been sentenced to jail and fined thousands of yuan for organising homosexual prostitution.



Beijing: Two men in China have been
sentenced to jail and fined thousands of yuan for organising
homosexual prostitution.

The men, surnamed Xiao and Liu, had hired eight young
men to offer sexual services to gay men from October to
November 2008 in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, said Sun Xia, a
spokeswoman for the Pingjiang District People`s Court in
Suzhou.
Xiao was sentenced to seven years in jail and fined
30,000 yuan and Liu was sentenced to two years and nine months
and fined 10,000 yuan, she said. Xiao and Liu had drawn
customers through the Internet, Sun said.

The eight sex workers were not gay themselves, but
they had wanted to make money, she said. They were ordered to
turn in 30 per cent of their earnings to Xiao and Liu for
every client, she said.
The prostitution ring was discovered late November
2008 when police investigated a robbery involving one of
Xiao`s sex workers, official Xinhua newsagency reported.

Xiao, 27, from eastern Jiangxi Province, had himself
offered sexual services for gay men in bars before organising
the prostitution ring in Suzhou, Sun said.
