Businessman Tang Boon Thiew (above), 39, has been named as the pimp in the ongoing underage prostitute sex case.
Unlike most other vice busts here, which involved foreign sex workers from countries like Thailand, Vietnam and China, the prostitutes in his case are all Singaporeans, aged between 18 and 47.
Tang is believed to be the pimp of the underage prostitute who allegedly had sex with the 48 men who were charged in court earlier this week.
He was charged in court last November with 35 counts of prostitution-related offences.
These charges include one count of engaging the sexual services of an underage prostitute.
