The Criminal Court of Jeddah has held two Arab national men and a female accomplice guilty of running a brothel for prostitution in Jeddah.
The Criminal Court of Jeddah found that the prostitution ring had forced the female companion into becoming a prostitute and then used her to carry out business and earn money.
The Arab men had threatened to gravely hurt her if she resisted or denied to comply with their every demand.
The operation was conducted based upon a tip from the residents of the area who stated that they would often see men arriving at the house, in the later hours of the night.
The Criminal Court of Jeddah has sentenced;
- 4 years Jail, 200 lashes, and SR 20,000 fine to the ring leader.
- 1 Year Jail, 90 lashes and SR 10,000 fine to the second man.
- 2.5 years of Jail and 90 lashes to the woman who acted as prostitute.
