Eight women were arrested last Thursday (11 January) in a joint enforcement operation conducted by officers from the Tanglin Police Division and Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB).

During the six-hour operation, three public entertainment outlets at Cuppage Plaza – located at 5 Koek Road – were found to have breached Public Entertainment Licensing Conditions.

According to a police news release, three of the women were arrested for appearing nude in a public place, two of whom were also caught for employment and immigration-related offences. Another five women were arrested for suspected drug-related offences, the release said.

Seven of the women were Vietnamese and one was Malaysian. Investigations against all the suspects are ongoing.

During a 10-day operation that ended last Friday, more than 90 people were arrested for their suspected involvement in prostitution within heartland and other areas.
