HONIARA, Solomon Islands (SIBC, Oct. 29) – Director of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force, Jackson Ofu, says Police have now opened investigations into the alleged prostitution racket since SIBC news broke the story of the alleged racket two weeks ago.

Mr Ofu says his department is now working together with the Immigration authorities to check on the details of a certain group of Asian women who had entered Solomon Islands on the pretext of being employed in a certain establishment in Honiara providing massage services.

Reports reaching SIBC say that a Solomon Islands woman who had worked along side the Asian women in the establishment providing massage services had alleged that Asian men and other expatriates who visited the establishment have been provided with sex services for a fee of up to $200 (US$27) an hour.

SIBC earlier reported that some of the Asian women, who were brought in from Korea, China, Malaysia and Indonesia by a local Chinese businessman, were also working as prostitutes at a certain night spot in Honiara.

Since SIBC ran the story, some members of the public have contacted the Corporation to say that the prostitution racket has been going on now for some time and were surprised it had just been made public.
